Accutane Side Effects

Accutane is the brand name for the generic drug isotretinoin.  Though Accutane was recalled in 2009, the same medication is still sold under the following names:

  • Amnesteem
  • Claravis
  • Clarus
  • Decutan
  • Izotek
  • Oratane
  • Sotret
  • Roaccutane

Accutane and other drugs containing isotretinoin have been linked to a number of bowel and intestinal problems, including:

  • Inflammatory bowel disease (IBD)
  • Crohn’s disease
  • Ulcerative colitis

These issues have been developed by Accutane users who have no prior history of bowel or intestinal problems, even years after they stopped using this drug.  Potential symptoms of Accutane IBD and similar disorders include:

  • Bowel pain
  • Chest pain
  • Stomach pain
  • Difficulty or pain while swallowing
  • Diarrhea
  • Weight loss
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Heartburn

Accutane Lawsuits

A recent report shows that Roche has already paid out more than $56 million in Accutane lawsuit damages to victims who were diagnosed with IBD or similar disorders after using this acne medication.  Most Accutane lawsuits are based on similar claims:

  • Roche did not provide sufficient warning about Accutane side effects
  • Roche did not properly research and test Accutane and its relation to bowel disorders
  • The risk of Accutane bowel problems outweighs the benefits of this drug
  • Once Roche was aware of Accutane IBD problems, they failed to issue a timely Accutane recall
  • The risk of Accutane IBD side effects is higher than the typical consumer would expect
