Warning Signs

The following warning signs indicate you may be suffering from the side effects of Accutane:

  • Rectal bleeding
  • Severe diarrhea
  • Abdominal cramping
  • Abdominal pain
  • Bloating
  • Other gastrointestinal pain, problems or discomfort

Accutane Side Effects Can Be Serious and Chronic

While the side effects can be manageable at times, the inflammatory bowel diseases are chronic and can come back without warning. They can cause very serious pain and disruption in a patient’s life. In many cases, patients have to take strong medications and/or undergo serious surgery — even having portions of their colon and rectum removed. Some patients require multiple surgeries.
