Information About Accutane
Accutane is a prescription drug prescribed to treat severe acne, typically after other forms of treatment have failed. It works to reduce the amount of oil released by the oil glands in a patient's skin and also helps the skin renew more quickly. Although Accutane may provide relief from severe acne, it may also cause life-threatening side effects.
Accutane side effects may be both physical and psychological, including:
Even one dose of Accutane during pregnancy can cause life-threatening birth defects. Since its release on the market, at least 70 suicides and thousands of other injuries have been reported to the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) related to Accutane use.
Contact an Accutane Injury Attorney
Although Accutane was developed to treat severe acne, it may be prescribed to patients with only mild to moderate acne. As such, a lawsuit may be brought against the medical professional who prescribed the drug and/or the manufacturer. By analyzing your particular case and injuries, an attorney at our law firm can help you take the legal action that is your right.
