California Accutane Injury Attorneys for the LGBT Community
If you or a loved one has taken Accutane in hopes of curing your acne, but have experienced health problems as a result, then you are in the right place.
Accutane (Isotretinoin) is a drug used to cure severe nodular and cystic acne. In most cases, it is used as a last resort when the patient is not responding to antibiotics or any other acne medications. The FDA approved Accutane in 1982 and while it has proven miracles for some, it also has had its downfalls. In the past, Accutane has been accompanied by harmful side effects that have affected areas such as the liver, intestines, eyes, ears, and the skeletal system. In addition, it has been associated with causing Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), severe birth defects, miscarriages, suicide, and depression. In recent years, the most at-risk population for psychiatric issues such as suicide and depression caused by taking Accutane has been teenagers. Overall, there have been over 7,000 lawsuits against this drug.
