Accutane Ulcerative Colitis Lawsuit

Accutane Ulcerative ColitisAccutane’s side effects can include ulcerative colitis

If you suffer from severe acne, you probably heard some facts concerning Accutane which decreases the production of oil by human skin glands, thus helping people get rid of their acne. As with many drugs, Accutane isn’t right for everybody and is recommended only for those people who tried other medications without results. This is due largely to Accutane side effects, which include:

  • Hair loss
  • Excess skin sensitiveness
  • Cracking Lips
  • Allergic reactions
  • Joint and back pain
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Dizziness
  • Fever
  • Abdominal pain
  • Mood swings
  • Depression
  • Suicidal thought
  • Loss of Appetite
  • Difficulty sleeping
  • Numbness in the body
  • Blurred vision
  • Severe migraines etc.

Though some of these Accutane side effects may not seem serious they can cause other more serious complications including ulcerative colitis.

This risk is one of the reasons the United States has already banned the drug. Canada is practically the only country where Accutane is still prescribed.

A number of Accutane victims filed lawsuit cases against Accutane’s manufacturer, claiming that they have suffered from Accutane-related side effects including ulcerative colitis. Ulcerative colitis causes the formation of small ulcers in human colon, which prevents the absorption of vital nutrients. If you are taking Accutane or if you have ever taken it before, the following Accutane ulcerative colitis symptoms should not be overlooked:

  • Diarrhea
  • Vomiting
  • Nausea
  • Abdominal pain
  • Rectal bleeding
  • Jaundice
  • Abdominal sounds
  • Stomach cramping on the left side of the body
  • Sudden weight loss

If ulcerative colitis is not treated in time, it may result in life-threatening conditions, such as colon rupture, bleeding and even death. Some complications are very painful, which is why many suffers consider filing an Accutane ulcerative colitis lawsuit.
