What is Accutane?
Accutane is a prescription medication used to treat severe nodular acne, which was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1982. However, the federal agency also issued a black box warning to Accutane. Such warnings are issued when there is reasonable evidence of an association of a serious hazard with the drug. Because of the adverse effects and lawsuits, Accutane was pulled off the market in 2009. Accutane is also known as Claravis, Sotret and Amnesteem. Various patients have required additional medical treatment after taking Accutane.
Accutane usage has been linked to:
- Inflammatory Bowel Diseases (IBD)
- Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS), which includes Accutane induced Crohn’s Disease or Ulcerative Colitis
- Colon removal
- Severe depression or suicidal tendencies
- Heart attack, stroke, seizure or lowered blood cell count
