I was given Accutane in between.get clear up my skin..Given the green light to try and have another baby and this is my time line from HELL.I have had miscarriage, blood clots, cellulitis, ovarian ruptures, back surgery, emergency appy after ovarian rupture sent blood into my stomach cavity, 15 autoimmune diseases including Lupus, IBD, Sarcoidosis, MCTD and Sjogrens and RA..also Premature Ovarian failure...teeth problems...How much can I bet Venus Williams took Accutane!!!! She now suffers from Sjogrens...Sitting in my 999tth doctors appointment with my mother I ran down the list of all things wrong with me....He asked my mom about the rest of the family..He was sure others close to me had the same diseases...MY MOTHER SAID NO ONE!!! My GP specializes in Genetics..Most do not know what we know on this sight..Accutane changes your DNA..Thats how all these horrible things happened without any family history!!!! Nathan is right on!! Anyone know a great lawyer?

Hi Amy,

I really feel for your situation; having been on Accutane myself for 6-8 months (about 5 years ago), I understand how horrible it can be. I'm just praying that I don't experience anything serious down the road, as I haven't been diagnosed with anything irregular to date. I'm just trying to eat as healthy as possible and exercise regularly to combat whatever I can. I'm in shock that you had to go through so much pain because of this. I can't even begin to fathom what Accutane does to one's DNA. It sorta just leaves me speechless thinking about how destructive it is...

Have you taken a look at these other two major Accutane threads?


I know that the second link here has a number of individuals posting about getting their lawyer's involved (haven't checked the first link yet). There's so many pages though in that thread, I would suggest just posting a quick response in there to see what type of action others are taking to fight against this company.

Alternatively, there are other threads on this site posting links to active petitions for people like us to sign and get the word out there about the danger of this drug and how to combat against this Roche Manufacturer.

I hope this info helps!
