Even though Accutane manufacturer Roche Pharmaceuticals stopped US distribution of Accutane two years ago, generic Accutane (isotretinoin) is still available in Virginia and North Carolina. Unfortunately, this means that some patients being treated for severe cystic acne are still taking this dangerous prescription drug.
Accutane has been linked to dozens of adverse side effects, so contact the pharmaceutical injury lawyers of Kalfus & Nachman if you are taking generic Accutane and have developed any negative symptoms, such as:
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS)
- Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
- Alopecia (hair loss)
- Loss of night vision
- Degenerative Disc Disease
- Keloid Scars
- Joint Pain
- Severe Birth Defects/Fetal Death
- Stunted Long Bone Growth
In addition to these symptoms, Accutane has also been known to induce depression, sometimes leading to suicide. If someone you love committed suicide while taking Accutane, you may have grounds for a wrongful death claim in Virginia or North Carolina.
