- Accutane Believed to Cause Crohn’s Disease
Acne is a problem that has affected millions of people. Despite a common and inaccurate belief that acne simply disappears with time, the fact is that acne is a serious skin condition that can be extremely painful and leave behind a lifetime of scarring. In response to the need by people to fight their serious cases of acne, Hoffman-LaRoche obtained approval from the FDA to market, sell and distribute a drug called Accutane in 1982. Unfortunately for many people, reports of Accutane side effects soon began to surface, creating the need for help from Accutane side effects lawyers. Below are brief descriptions of two Accutane side effects – Crohn’s Disease and ulcerative colitis.
If you or someone you love has used Accutane for acne and has suffered from any Accutane side effects, you need to contactaPhoenix personal injury lawyeratPhillips Law Group today to schedule a free initial consultation.
Accutane Side Effect – Crohn’s Disease
Crohn’s Disease is a serious condition in which the patient’s intestinal wall comes under attack. Specifically, ulcers form inside the intestinal wall, and over time these ulcers spread. In addition to spreading, these ulcers release toxins inside the intestinal tract and can ultimately lead to permanent damage to the wall of the bowels. Patients tend to experience pain, discomfort, regular if not chronic diarrhea and other symptoms that make daily life miserable and that can lead to permanent disability.
Accutane Side Effect – Ulcerative Colitis
Another common Accutane side effect is a condition known as ulcerative colitis. Ulcerative colitis is somewhat similar to Crohn’s Disease, although its location is limited to the wall of the large intestine. When someone suffers from ulcerative colitis, the patient will experience intense pain because of the inflammation that occurs inside the large intestine. Those who suffer from the long-term effects of ulcerative colitis may be enforced to endure permanent damage to the intestinal wall and to the rectum.
Ultimately, Accutane was recalled in 2009 after coming under intense scrutiny from the FDA.
Phillips Law Group does so much for the community!!! I especially enjoy seeing Juan Roque out there. This gentle giant always has a smile on his face and is a part of a caring and giving team.
If you are in need of legal support for a motor vehicle collision of any kind, I highly recommend going to Phillips Law Group Injury Lawyers. Sean Davis has exemplary knowledge and experience in this field, compassion for his clients, and excellent judgment and communication skills.
Jasmine , did a great job . Highly recommend!!!!!
My review is for Kathy Hudson a legal assistant at the law firm. She is great! She is very professional and a fair based person. She was never rude to me and always called me back. She listened to me and had my best interest as number 1. Mr Nasir who is a supervisor at law firm also was very professional and helpful. Not sure if spelling his name correctly but sorry if not. As far as mr Ross and the lady that runs the front desk reception I would say they are the most unprofessional and rude people I have met at a law firm in my life especially beings they were representing me. But Kathy made it overall a better experience. Thx Kathy.
PLG is the best! Highly recommend. Love that they do so much to help the community.
Juan Roque has been integral with my legal needs. Communication has been easy. He conveys information I can easily understand without a lot of "Legal Fluff" jargon. I will certainly do business with Phillips Legal team again and refer them to my friends and family.
I just wanted to thank Phillips law Group and Vanessa Rodriguez for all the help that she did for my daughter’s case. She was involved in her first accident and she needed the help to deal with these adjusters. Thank you again.
