Accutane (isotretinoin) was developed in 1982 for the treatment of severe acne. It has been used by more than 16 million people worldwide before an Accutane recall was issued in June 2009, and the brand name medication was discontinued. Roche cited the cost of defending against Accutane lawsuits as a factor in their decision to stop selling the name brand of the medication in the U.S. Accutane continues to be available as a generic sold under a variety of names, such as Claravis, Sotret, Amnesteem and generic isotretinoin.
ACCUTANE SIDE EFFECTS: Accutane has been linked to conditions similar to vitamin A toxicity which appears to be dosage related. Scientific studies have suggested that Accutane adverse reactions could include:
- Accutane Depression
- Accutane Crohn’s disease
- Accutane Inflammatory bowel disease
- Accutane Ulcerative colitis
- Accutane Proctitis
ACCUTANE BOWEL DAMAGE: Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) refers to a group of digestive disorders including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease – these disorders have been linked to the drug manufactured by Roche called Accutane. IBD impacts the intestinal tract, often results in surgery and can be life altering.
Crohn’s disease affects all layers of the intestinal wall in the small and large intestines, as well as other digestive organs and can cause parts of the intestines to narrow, cause the formation of abnormal tunnels between digestive organs, and cause fissures in the anal skin.
Ulcerative colitis affects the inner lining of the colon and rectum, causing them to become inflamed. There is no cure for either disease. However medication and surgery are options which can be effective in treating these ailments.
If you took Accutane and suffer from bowel damage, call 888 644-3578 and speak to a registered nurse on staff.
ACCUTANE STEVENS-JOHNSON SYNDROME:
In February 2010, Health Canada reported that it had received reports of severe skin reactions, including sometimes fatal reaction known as Stevens – Johnson Syndrome from Accutane. At least 66 reports of Accutane skin reactions were identified by Health Canada, including adults and children, with two of the cases resulting in death.
Stevens-Johnson Syndrome (SJS) is a severe skin reaction that occurs as a side effect of several medications. It is highly debilitating and causes the skin to burn from the inside out, producing blisters, severe rashes and the skin may begin to separate from the body.
If you took Accutane and suffer from Stevens – Johnson Syndrome, call 888 644-3578 and speak to a registered nurse on staff.
