Accutane was developed by the Hoffman LaRoche Company, and it was offered via prescription for people who suffered from severe forms of acne. Specifically, Accutane was most often prescribed for people suffering from nodular acne, which is extremely painful for the patient and tends to leave behind permanent scarring even after the initial condition is resolved. It generally took a few weeks to a few months for any improvement to be shown, but Accutane was relatively successful at reducing the harm done by this condition.
Unfortunately, it wasn’t long before reports of serious Accutane side effects began to surface. These alleged Accutane side effects generally dealt with harm that was done to the gastrointestinal tract and digestive system of the body, and examples of commonly reported Accutane side effects include:
