All medications have some type of side effect. However, Accutane® is prescribed for acne, a condition that is serious but not life threatening. Personal appearance is extremely important to young and old people alike. Hoffmann-LaRoche capitalized on this need, minimized the serious risks associated with their medication and made millions selling Accutane®.
Accutane® has been linked to suicide, depression, severe birth defects, and damage to the liver, kidneys, and colon. A congressional investigation of Accutane® found that the suicide rate among users may be as high as two suicides per month, an unusually high number for any group, but especially high for otherwise healthy people who showed no signs of depression before they started using Accutane®.

Birth defects associated with Accutane® are so severe that women who become pregnant while using the drug are typically advised by their physician to have an abortion. Women who take Accutane® are required to use two forms of contraception to guard against pregnancy while they are on the drug. The harmful Accutane® side effects on a human fetus continue for at least one month after the drug has been discontinued.
