What is Accutane?

Accutane was a drug marketed by Roche Pharmaceuticals for the treatment of moderate to severe acne. Accutane was pulled from the market in 2009, however millions of people took the drug while is was available. Generic versions of Accutane may still be available by prescription. Some people who took Accutane later developed an inflammatory bowel syndrome such as Crohn’s Disease, or Ulcerative Colitis, which Roche failed to disclose as a potential side-effect in the drug’s warnings. Some individuals have successfully sued Roche, and judgments have been in the millions of Dollars. If you developed an illness or disease after taking Accutane it’s important to contact a personal injury attorney immediately. Failure to file a timely claim may result in a forfeiture of your claim forever.
