Accutane Lawsuit Settlement 2013 News
Helping people who have suffered from Accutane side effects including inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis and representing individuals in filing an Accutane lawsuit.
Following the Accutane recall 2009, many people who are still suffering from Accutane long term side effects have looked into their legal options including being part of an Accutane lawsuit settlement due to ongoing inflammatory bowel disease problems. Accutane is a powerful prescription acne drug treatment intended to treat severe nodular acne. Unfortunately, the acne medication was widely prescribed to also treat all forms of acne, including mild and moderate cases. The drug was manufactured by Hoffman La Roche and sold in the United States prior to the Roche Accutane recall.
People often suffered from Accutane side effects years later after using this medication. Patients taking this medication for acne treatment have developed a form of irritable bowel disease (IBD) called Crohn’s disease. This disorder causes inflammation of the digestive tract, most commonly affecting the lower part of the small intestine. The most common symptoms include stomach cramps, abdominal pain and diarrhea.
Accutane Inflammatory Bowel Disease
Accutane ulcerative colitis is another disorder that is a form of inflammatory bowel disease that causes inflammation and ulcers (sores) in the lining of the rectum and colon. Accutane long term side effects involving IBD can occur in different parts of the digestive system including the small intestine, colon, mouth, esophagus and mouth. This inflammation causes frequent emptying of the colon leading to diarrhea. Ulcerative colitis is similar to Crohns disease, the difference being Crohn’s causes inflammation deeper within the intestinal wall.
Accutane FDA Warning
The Food and Drug Administration required an Accutane FDA warning in the form of a black box label. Accutane was often prescribed and marketed under different drug names. Generic Accutane names and prescription forms include:
• Isotret (Sotret)
