Accutane Side Effects Justify Accutane Lawsuits
The acne medicine Accutane has a long history of having dangerous side effects on many patients. Patients who took Accutane have suffered a wide variety of side effects including birth defects to their children, miscarriages, Crohn’s Disease and Ulcerative Colitis.
Accutane has recently become known for a number of patients who have committed suicide or developed serious psychological instabilities while taking the drug. Hoffman-La Roche allegedly knew about potential side effects before the drug was released.
Patients now must sign a consent form before taking Accutane. It is one of only three medicines, in the history of U.S. medicine, to come with a FDA warning brochure called a Medguide. Accutane side effects can be very serious. Some of the more dangerous side effects include:
- Depression along with Suicidal Tendencies
- Crohn’s Disease and other Bowel Inflammatory Disorders
- Pancreatic Damage and Liver Disease
- Muscle and/or Bone Damage
- Severe Birth Defects
- Hearing or Vision Problems
- Central Nervous System Ailments
