Accutane ulcerative colitis class action lawsuit

Common Questions and Answers about Accutane ulcerative colitis class action lawsuit


Avatar f tn I read in the newspaper a few months later that the first hospital was getting a class action lawsuit from the doctors who worked there over policies to discharge patients. Anyone who spends anytime in the ER knows that it's just for temporary relief. If they got testing by a credible eye specialist and neurologist afterward.... And I do emphasize the word credible.....
Avatar f tn Hi! My 15-year-old son developed knee pains when he ran in the spring (he used to play soccer) and during the tests to figure out what the problem was, they found his ANA was positive. My husband's is, too, but doctors concluded that he didn't have anything (he developed ulcerative colitis a decade or so later). Doctors wound up thinking that my son also didn't have anything. They prescribed PT for his knees. My son has developed Raynaud's this winter.

Avatar f tn What are the odds of those of us that are suffering from from tooth decay and paying outrageously for doctors appointments, prescriptions, and now dentists and dental bills, what do we need or have to do to begin a class action lawsuit? Four members of my family have been on subutex for about 6 years some for general pain and some for addiction and we all have the same issues with decaying teeth and such. Our doctor has no means of tapering us off but we all have started ourselves.
Avatar m tn and the last question is about the relationship between Proctitis or Ulcerative Colitis and taking Isotretinoin (Accutane). do you believe that Isotretinoin (Accutane) cause Proctitis or Ulcerative Colitis ? since when I was young I used this medicine for my acne and I searched in the internet many have the same story with me - I mean using Isotretinoin (Accutane) and then Proctitis or Ulcerative Colitis. what is your idea ?
Avatar m tn My 23 year old daughter was diagnosed with ulcerative colitis several years ago. One of the symptoms she developed was cystic acne, which we were told can be caused by the colitis. She's presently on Liadyl and her ulcerative colitis is under control but the cystic acne will not go away. She goes to the dermatologist constantly for injections, but the cysts just go down for a day and come right back up again. The dermatologist has given her a few prescriptions but nothing helps at all.
Avatar m tn To control Ulcerative colitis, drink pomegranate juice (or chew the fruit and discard the hard seed).Do the kapalbhati pranayam for 30 minutes, twice a day.This works gradually, so be patient and allow months to notice the benefit. Build up your timing gradually.If you feel tired or dizzy, stop and resume after one minute. Kapalbhati pranayam -(Do it before eating) Push air forcefully out through the nose about once per second. Stomach will itself go in(contract in).
Avatar f tn Has there been a class action lawsuit for the recall of contaminated lot number in the fall of 2017 ?
Avatar m tn So far, lawsuits have focused on Accutane and birth defects, depression and suicide, ulcerative colitis and Crohn's disease. Eg: "Accutane Lawsuit: Andrew McCarrell Wins $25 Million After Having Colon Removed." No mention of Accutane associated with hypothyroidism. Good thing you only took the drug for three days.
Avatar n tn I would like to see a picture of the rash so that I can see if it is the same as mine. Red with heat, rising on the skin, and itches especially when, I'm working and get sweaty.
Avatar f tn Wow! I can't believe I stumbled on this information. I have been going crazy for the past 6 months trying to figure out why my breasts have had a rash, they are constantly itchy and blotchy. I just figureed it was dry skin, new detergent, cream...trying everything, but nothing worked. How horrifying to find out there may be formaldehyde in the bras. I've never been part of a class action lawsuit, but I will definitely participate in this one if it comes to fruition....
Avatar n tn Hi, I would like to know how to join the class action lawsuit case against Victoria's Secret. I have been to a dermatologist and an internist over this and my underwire area is still red and itchy. Thank you.
Avatar f tn I'm not a doctor but I have heard that the nerves can be desensitized from trama, leaving you unable to feel when you have to go. I think Ulcerative colitis probably can be very tramatic. My cousin's son had a blockage from constipation and he experienced the same thing when his colon streched to allow the bowel movement to go around the blockage. Either way, its a sign that some kind of damage is taking place. I would contacted my doctor.
Avatar n tn Can you tell me if the Tram Flap Reconstruction problems that I hear about all over the internet be associated with the Pelvic Mesh class action lawsuit. Thousands of women have gone through the same kind of injuries and side effects as the women who have undergone the Hernia Mesh, Transvaginal Mesh, and Abdominal Mesh surgical procedure. This reconstruction has put women lives in danger and should be label an extreme danger to women lives.
1356959 tn?1488975948 Another warning is about affecting your bowels, like ulcerative colitis ETC. Lawyers had commercials airing about the accutane side effects to the bowel. Myself I did develope Irritable bowel mid 2003, and while having a hysterectomy in 2009, the surgeon documented my liver was congested. Who knows really if either problem were a direct result of the accutane. Just a bit more info for you. Good Luck & GOD SPEED.
Avatar n tn Is there a class action suit pending or being organized against manufactuers of ReStor IOL multifocal lenses?
Avatar m tn I have a NEW G.I. doc who keeps referring me to a colonoscopy and an MRCP before she decides to do anything but I've had a flare-up of UC for a month and need some relief. Today I saw a whole Asacol HD tablet excreted and the G.I.doc said "that's ok--it's still absorbed." Ok--so now I must be reasonable and ask a question as how is it absorbed when NONE OF IT--repeat, NONE OF IT---is degraded at all? This woman doesn't get it. Anyway, what should I do now?
Avatar n tn Hi, Ulcerative colitis is a form of inflammatory bowel disease . Ulcerative colitis is a form of colitis, a disease of the colon , that includes characteristic ulcers, or open sores. The main symptom of active disease is usually constant diarrhea mixed with blood, of gradual onset. IBD is often confused with irritable bowel syndrome , a troublesome, but much less serious, condition.
Avatar f tn I also would like information on this class action lawsuit. I am always itchy, I have contributed it dry skin. I have also had sores that have left me with scars. Never thought and my Dr. never mentioned it could be my bra. I am faithful to my VS body by Victoria!
Avatar f tn I would like more information on how to join the class action suit. If anyone has any info on how to get into this Class Action Suit, please let me know, it would be greatly appreciated.
