Accutane Product Liability

Accutane Product Liability

Virginia Personal Injury Lawyers Helping Clients Get the Compensation They Deserve

Approved by the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1982, Accutane (isotretinoin) was removed from the market in the United States due to several serious side effects and hundreds of deaths attributed to this dangerous drug.

Accutane is usually prescribed for a certain kind of severe acne known as resistant nodular cystic acne, but was first developed as a cancer-fighting chemotherapy drug because it tends to kill rapidly growing and dividing cells. Accutane is still used for these purposes, but its labeling has been modified more than 20 times to include reported side effects and adverse reactions.

If you have experienced any negative reaction to taking Accutane, including depression and IBS, the Norfolk defective product lawyers of Kalfus & Nachman PC can help you determine if you are entitled to money damages. Call (855) 880-8163 today for a free consultation.

Accutane Adverse Reactions & Side Effects

Accutane is quite toxic in high doses, and even the lower dosages used for cystic acne treatment are known to cause a wide range of both temporary and permanent side effects and adverse reactions.

Some of the more serious, permanent Accutane side effects include:

  • 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
  • Lupus
  • Stunted long bone growth

One of the most serious temporary side effects of taking this dangerous drug is Accutane-induced depression with suicidal tendencies. To date, more than 200 suicides have been linked to Accutane. If you have a family member who committed suicide while taking Accutane, schedule a consultation with our attorneys to find out if you have grounds for a wrongful death claim.

Accutane is associated with dozens of other adverse effects, so if you developed any sort of medical condition or injury after taking Accutane, the Virginia product liability attorneys of Kalfus & Nachman PC can help you find out if you have a case.
