Accutane is a synthetic kind of Vitamin A that is developed especially for treatment of severe cases of nodular acne. Due to the lack of information and irresponsibility of doctors, producers and dealers, this drug had also been prescribed to patients with not as acute acne. Due to this, and because of the somewhat dangerous veil that has been covering the product, a lot of cases of severe depression, anxiety disorder, as well as suicidal intentions came out in the open just recently.
Physical side effects include inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, and ulcerative colitis. People who had been prescribed Accutane or similar drugs are still in the dark about what had caused their health issues. These issues appeared only after taking the medicine but many were not informed beforehand of the possible side effects. Everyone who had been in contact with this medicine is advised to look deeper into the illness and see if Accutane may have something to do with it.
Due to Accutane, many injuries are being sustained- some minor, and some severe. Several lawsuits are filed against the maker – Hoffman - LaRoche all through the States, Canada and also as far as Australia. Examples include effects of unsuccessful suicide attempts, psychological injuries suffered after the intake of the drug, and mental injuries suffered by the families of those who had successfully attempted suicide. The family of 15-year-old male who crashed a small airplane into a building in Florida are claiming that the company and its product are the cause for the injuries sustained in the crash. Birth defects, also considered injuries in certain occasions, are also being the subject to filed claims and lawsuits versus the company.
According to the FDA, there are as much as a thousand pending claims against the company across state and federal courts all over the United States. More are being filed even now in neighbouring Canada and Australia. Accutane injuries can vary from suicides and suicide attempts to the effects of suffered surgeries to mental illnesses. There may be even more effects from taking Accutane that have not been brought to light. If you find yourself with a new illness and were prescribed accutane, it is a good idea for you to find out if Accutane is to blame.
