Following the Accutane recall 2009, many people who are still suffering from Accutane long term side effects have looked into their legal options including being part of an Accutane IBS lawsuit due to ongoing bowel problems. Accutane is a powerful prescription acne drug treatment intended to treat severe nodular acne. Unfortunately, the acne medication was widely prescribed to also treat all forms of acne, including mild and moderate cases. The drug was manufactured by Hoffman La Roche and sold in the United States prior to the Roche Accutane recall.
Accutane Crohn’s Disease
Since Accutane’s introduction in 1982, millions of prescriptions have been written for this acne medication. Unfortunately, this drug came with serious long term effects including Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis and IBS. Patients affected by these more serious bowel problem side effects years later have looked at filing an Accutane Crohns lawsuit to help compensate for medical bills and the permanent injuries caused by this drug.
Crohn’s disease is a category of bowel disorder that is part of inflammatory bowel disease which is the general name for a disease that causes swelling or inflammation in the intestines. Accutane IBD Crohns disease affects men and women equally. All layers of the intestine may be involved and normal healthy bowel can exist between sections of diseased bowel.
Accutane Inflammatory Bowel Disease
It is estimated that around one million people in the United States have inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). Diagnosis of IBD is based on a combination of exams including endoscopic, x-rays, and blood and tissue tests. Two-thirds to three-quarters of patients with Crohn’s disease will require surgery at some point during their lives. Surgical treatment becomes necessary when medications are no longer able to control the symptoms. Surgery may also become necessary if there is an intestinal obstruction or other complications such as an intestinal abscess. In such cases, the diseased bowel segment is removed in a procedure called a resection. Accutane ulcerative colitis is another disorder that is a form of inflammatory bowel disease that causes inflammation and ulcers (sores) in the lining of the rectum and colon.
