There is a stealthy suspicion that Roaccutane and Accutane killed ten youngsters due to its potency.

Adolescents, acne and death are the keywords for this horrific tragedy, as Roaccutane and Accutane are the drugs that caused the premature death of these young people. The allegation finger points to these powerful anti-acne drugs that help relieve the symptoms of acne, with young people most commonly suffering from this disease.

Despite the attempt to identify it as the cause of death, it was pointed out that there was no objective evidence to make it the cause. What’s more, researchers are working to understand how the two drugs affect our neurology. Another part of the research is to begin the actual documentation of the side effects of the anti-acne medication. You should know that young people are aware of their appearance and that skin acne is not desirable for them.

The Roaccutane and Accutane acne treatment is based on the drug isotretinoin which was approved in 1982 for sale. As with all drugs used by the general public, despite FDA approval, there has been lingering doubt about the drug’s safety ever since. It is commercially successful because it can cure acne in up to four to six months. The best result of using acne treatment is that acne never recurs. But, a fact remains that the drug may be able to affect the neurology of the brain, causing depression with a face full of acne.

Now, find some leads on how isotretinoin and its derivative “Accutane” should be investigated as a potential cause of premature death in young people. One example is the suicide of a teenager, who crashed a plane in a skyscraper that was blamed on Accutane. The mother blamed the acne medication for the suicide and said the problem could have been avoided.

The link between suspected suicides and isotretinoin has been investigated for the answer. One of the objectives of the study was to examine all the evidence to link the results and give conclusive evidence. All reported adverse events related to the use of the anti-acne drug from 1997 to 2017 are analyzed together. Evidence has been gathered from all these records which list all the negative effects of taking the drug treatment. These are the compiled facts that were analyzed from all the records, related to isotretinoin.

a. Suicide attempts

b. Suicidal deaths

vs. Depressive conditions

D. Insomnia

e. Anxiety problems

F. Emotional disability

All of these results were discovered, as the researcher looked at all cases involving users of the anti-acne drug. But, a big hole is not having a wide net to account for all the evidence gleaned. Such symptoms may be due to other problems not caused by the drug.

But, others suggest the study is like Swiss cheese with too many dead ends to explain. Prescribing the drug is normal for a skin specialist, as his concern for the skin does not include mental form. Further studies are needed to finalize it, but this would not affect the prescription of Roaccutane and Accutane.
