Accutane

Have You Suffered Adverse Accutane Side Effects?

Since 1982, when Accutane was introduced to the market, more than 20 million people have used Accutane or its generic equivalents for the treatment of acne. Many have experienced significant side effects, including birth defects, inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease and depression.

Drug manufacturers have a legal responsibility to produce and market products that are safe for their intended uses. When harm comes to someone who was prescribed a medication, that person may be eligible for compensation for medical costs, lost income and pain and suffering.

Roche Pharmaceuticals, the manufacturer of Accutane, removed it from the market in 2009, in part due to the high costs of litigation. The generic form of the drug (isotretinoin) is still marketed under a variety of trade names, including Amnesteem, Claravis, and Sotret.
