Accutane Lawyers

The Accutane lawyers at Chaffin Luhana LLP are defective drug attorneys who are dedicated to aggressively representing the rights of those who have developed serious health complications as a result of taking the acne drug known as Accutane (generically isotretinoin). Receiving approval by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1982, Accutane has been prescribed in the treatment of severe acne when all other treatment methods have failed. Accutane was made and distributed in the U.S. by Hoffman-LaRoche (now LaRoche Pharmaceuticals).

However, despite being the most potent and effective acne medication, Accutane is known to cause a number of severe, debilitating and, at times, life-threatening side effects, including:

  • birth defects (when a pregnant women takes this medication)
  • depression
  • inflammatory bowel disease (IBD), including Crohn’s disease and ulcerative colitis (marked by cramping, diarrhea, dehydration and gastrointestinal inflammation)
  • jaundice (marked by a yellowing of the whites of the eyes)
  • liver damage (characterized by abdominal pain, fatigue and weight loss)
  • pancreatitis (infection or inflammation of the pancreas)
  • severe allergic reactions (characterized by rashes, hives, and breathing difficulties)
  • suicidal thoughts or behaviors

Accutane users who sustain any of the above health complications should seek emergency medical treatment to prevent further health complications. When their health is stable, they should consult with a skilled Accutane attorney at Chaffin Luhana LLP to learn more about their legal rights and see if they are eligible to file an Accutane lawsuit.
