    What is Accutane?

    Accutane is a popular drug used to treat severe acne that has not been improved by other treatments. It was approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1982 and is also marketed under the names Roaccutane, Amnesteem, Claravis, Sotret and generic isotretinoin. It is estimated that more than 16 million people have used Accutane.

    What Is the Problem with Accutane?

    Patients have complained of the following health problems following use of Accutane: inflammatory bowel disease, depression, suicide, mental problems, mood swings, irritability and anger, as well as changes in sleep habits, weight and appetite.

    What is the Current Status of Accutane?

    Accutane was pulled from the market in 2009 following a voluntary recall by its manufacturer, Roche Holdings AG. Although the drug is no longer available in the United States, it remains available in Canada and several other countries. It is still available in some of its generic forms, as well. In 2010, the FDA announced that Accutane was not recalled due to safety or efficacy concerns, but rather due to a voluntary recall by Accutane’s manufacturer and, therefore, the FDA did not remove its approval of the drug.

    If you or someone you love has experienced any adverse health effects as a result of taking Accutane, contact the experienced Chicago Accutane product liability attorneys at Ankin Law to discuss a possible product liability claim.
