Accutane Lawsuit

Tuesday, February 08, 2011

In recent years, there have been a number of complaints about Accutane. This medication was prescribed to cure cystic acne in the early 2000s. It seemed effective as I personally know someone who took this medicine as prescribed by her dermatologist. However, in 2006, a study was published saying that there is a link between the use of this drug and the increase in risk of contracting a inflammatory bowel disease. An Accutane lawsuit was actually settled and was awarded US$2.5 million in compensatory damages in 2007. Though Accutane have been pulled out of the market in 2009, there could be a lot more cases out there that needs attention. I suppose this could go on for years, and I just hope everyone who deserves to be compensated be given what is right for them.
