In June 2009, Roche Pharmaceuticals, the maker of Accutane, said it was no longer making the drug due in large part to the increasing costs of defending lawsuits filed by users who were injured by Accutane.

The use of Accutane has been associated with the following types of gastrointestinal injuries:

    * Inflammatory Bowel Disease
    * Crohn's Disease
    * Ulcerative Colitis
    * Rectal Bleeding

From 1997 to 2002, the Food and Drug Administration received 85 reports of inflammatory bowel disease it associated with the use of Accutane. In nearly all the cases, the agency determined it was "high probable" or "probable" that Accutane had caused the patients to develop the disease.

If you or a loved one has taken the acne drug Accutane and developed inflammatory bowel disease, Crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis, or another form of gastrointestinal injury, we encourage you to contact qualified, experienced, and aggressive legal counsel as soon as possible to evaluate your possible legal rights.
