Accutane (isotretinoin), made by Hoffmann-LaRoche, entered the market in 1982 to
treat only the most severe forms of acne that could not be treated with other
medication. Since then, more than five million people in the United States and 12 million
people around the world have used Accutane. Some have suffered severe side effects.
The most widely publicized adverse reactions to Accutane have been suicide, depression,
severe birth defects, and damage to the liver, kidneys, and colon.
The United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) first required Hoffmann-LaRoche
to increase warnings about the danger of birth defects as a result of using Accutane
in 1983. In 2005, the FDA approved a strengthened risk management plan for Accutane
to make sure women did not become pregnant while taking the medicine because it caused
severe birth defects as well as miscarriages. That same year, the FDA also approved
new warnings for risks of depression and psychiatric problems. More recently, Accutane
has been linked to incidents of severe pancreatitis and inflammatory bowel disease,
sometimes requiring surgical removal of certain organs.
In June 2009, Hoffmann-LaRoche announced that it was removing the drug from the U.S.
market stating increased competition of generics and the cost of defending itself from
lawsuits. So far, the total amount of lawsuit awards to Accutane users is $56 million. The drug
is so dangerous that the FDA changed its rules so that doctors must now get patients to
sign a consent form saying that the patient understands all the risks associated with
Accutane. It is also one of just three drugs in the United States that has ever been
required to come with a Medguide (a detailed warning distributed by pharmacists).
When companies act negligently and allow a dangerous drug into the marketplace, it is you
as the consumer who is harmed while the company makes a profit. Negligent drug companies
must be held liable for the lives they harm. Everyone knows if you have been hurt by a
pharmaceutical company through negligence, you call Ken Nunn. I am an aggressive drug injury lawyer who knows Indiana pharmaceutical laws. I will help you get the settlement
If you have experienced Accutane side effects such as birth defects, Inflammatory Bowel
Disease or Crohn's Disease, you may be entitled to compensation. While financial
compensation will not restore your losses, it can help take care of your medical bills
and other expenses while helping you to rebuild your life. Contact me today online to
