New York Accutane Attorneys
Accutane ®, also known as Isotretinoin, is used to treat acne. Each treatment lasts approximately five months and it results in the clearing of acne for one year or more after the medicine is stopped.
Side Effects of Accutane:
- Chapped lips.
- Dry skin and itching.
- Dryness of nose, mild nosebleed.
- Irritation of the eyelids and eyes.
- Joint and muscle pains.
- Temporary hair thinning.
- Intestinal symptoms.
- Urinary symptoms.
- Increased sensitivity to sunburn.
- Decreased night vision.
- Depression, mental problems, thoughts of suicide.Some of the most dramatic side effects affect women who have taken Accutane while they were pregnant. Accutane can cause serious birth defects in babies, lead to a higher risk of miscarriage, premature deliveries and death of the baby at birth.In fact, the risks are so high that a woman who does get pregnant while on isotretinoin must be prepared to have an abortion and must state this in writing before many physicians will even prescribe isotretinoin for her.Mental problems and suicidal thoughts have also been linked to Accutane. The challenge is in determining whether Accutane was a contributing factor or if those thoughts and feelings would have been there even without the drug.
