The Dangers of Accutane

dangers of accutaneIf you’ve been reading my blog for a while, you’ll know that I believe in using natural and holistic remedies whenever possible to balance and restore the body to health.   That’s not to say that all pharmaceutical drugs are bad.   There are times when they do save lives.

That said, I’m writing this letter about one of the worst pharmaceutical drugs ever.   It’s called Accutane and it’s commonly used in Acne treatment medications.    This drug, on the market since 1982 has been directly linked to all of the following:

  • Inflammatory Bowel Disease
  • Ulcerative Colitis
  • Crohn’s Disease
  • SJS & TEN (skin diseases)

In addition, major fetal abnormalities have been associated with Accutane.   It’s so dangerous to pregnant and nursing women, in fact, that the warning label on the bottle says…

“…there is an extremely high risk that a deformed infant can result if pregnancy occurs while taking Accutane in any amount even for short periods of time. ‘

After losing a lawsuit, Roche, the manufacturer of Accutane pulled it from the US market in June 2009.

The drug is still available in other countries, though.

Please share this email and if you know anyone who is looking for a holistic and natural way to treat Acne send them to my friend Mike Walden here:
