FDA: Prescriptions Down By 30 Percent For Controversial Acne Drug

Dec 12, 2002 | AP

The Food and Drug Administration says prescriptions for the controversial acne drug Accutane are down about 30 percent.

The agency says the drop is due to the Accutane side effects, which allegedly include birth defects and fetal death. The F-D-A made the report to a House panel yesterday.

Lawmakers are also concerned about the drug's possible but unproven link to suicide.

Michigan Congressman Bart Stupak says the F-D-A's response to the drug's side effects "has been inadequate, irresponsible and unacceptable."

Stupak's son was taking Accutane when he committed suicide two years ago. Probably it was B.J.’s tragic death that made many drug’s sufferers seek the legal help of a professional Accutane attorney to assert their legal rights in court.

The drug's maker tells the House panel that a warning about depression is attached to each prescription and that millions of Americans have benefited from the drug.
