Accutane Lawsuit

I guess those that have been suffering from cystic acne have heard or have been prescribed to take Accutane by their doctors. That medicine raised a controversy in 2006 when studies showed that taking Accutane can increase the risk of the patient in contracting IBD inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn’s disease, or ulcerative colitis. Due to that anAccutane lawsuit was filed by many victims. In 2007, a victim was even awarded with a $2.5 million in damages resulting to accutane use.

I know that there are still a lot of patients that have been affected by the use of this drug and just in case they didn’t know, they can still file a lawsuit against their doctor of they have been prescribed by the already banned drug.
