If I had known that my intestines were at risk of being chronically inflamed I would've have never taken it! The fact is the manufacturers of Accutane knew about the IBD risks but decided to sell the product anyways, reaping massive profits.
The makers of Accutane, Roche Holding, pulled the drug after several lawsuits that resulted in large payments to plaintiffs who claimed that Accutane caused their inflammatory bowel disease (IBD). A recent study (presented at the American College of Gastroenterology's 2009 meeting) of 21,832 healthy people and 8,189 people with IBD showed that those who had taken Accutane were one and a half times more likely to have developed IBD. The risk further increased with long-term use of the drug.
