Florida Accutane Lawsuit

Obtaining Compensation For The Injured Since 1982

South Florida Accutane Lawyer

As you may know, acne medication Accutane® has been linked to serious intestinal problems such as Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD), which symptoms include abdominal pain and cramping, diarrhea, fever, weight loss, and bleeding. Although Accutane was removed from the US market last year, generic versions of the drug including Claravis®, Sotret®, and Amnesteem® are still sold.

If you have taken Accutane or one of its generic forms and believe you were harmed as a result, you may have the right to file a lawsuit to cover the cost of medical expenses and compensate for the pain and suffering caused by the adverse effects of the drug. However, please note, if you intend to exercise your rights you should do so within 5 years of using Accutane or one of its generic substitutes named above in order to avoid statute of limitation issues.

Additional serious side effects associated with Accutane use include:

  • Depression
  • Ulcerative colitis
  • Crohn's Disease, and rectal bleeding
  • Liver disease
  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease (IBD)
  • Suicide
  • Psychiatric side effects
  • Gastrointestinal disorders
  • Headaches
  • Chapped lips
  • Thinning hair
  • Dry nasal passages/nosebleeds
  • If used while pregnant, miscarriage, birth defects, premature births, and deaths in babies
  • Spontaneous osteoporosis, decrease in bone density, bone fractures, delay in healing of bone fractures, and muscle weakness
  • Temporary or permanent hearing loss
  • Severe allergic reaction

The development of IBD and these other side effects following treatment with Accutane has prompted the filing of numerous lawsuits against Roche Pharmaceuticals.
