Symptoms of IBD Linked to Accutane Usage

Hundreds of people across the country have filed Accutane IBD and Accutane Crohn’s disease class action lawsuits. They claim taking Accutane caused IBD and IBD symptoms to develop, including ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease.

According to WebMD, the symptoms of ulcerative colitis and Crohn’s disease are similar:

* Abdominal pain or cramping
* Diarrhea multiple times per day
* Bloody stools
* Weight loss

The symptoms of IBD range from mild to severe and may come and go over time. Most people have flare-ups followed by long periods without symptoms. This is called remission, and it can last for months or even years. In ulcerative colitis, about 5% to 10% of patients have symptoms all the time. Chronic belly pain and urgent trips to the bathroom can interfere with work, child care, and social life.
