FDA Urged To Ban Acne Med Sales Online

Feb 2, 2004 | UPI

A doctors' group has urged the Food and Drug Administration to ban Internet sales of a popular drug to treat acne because of the dangerous Accutane side effects.

In a letter sent Monday to the FDA, the American Academy of Dermatology Association urged the agency to restrict sales of isotretinoin, commonly known as Accutane a treatment for severe cystic acne to prescriptions only. The drug is known to cause serious side effects if taken incorrectly, such as birth defects in babies born to mothers who took isotretinoin while pregnant.

The AADA said it is providing the FDA with a preliminary list of Internet sites from which isotretinoin can be purchased.
