Accutane Inflammatory Bowel Disease Causes and Reviews


Crohn's disease causes inflammation of the digestive system. It is one of a group of diseases called inflammatory bowel disease. Crohn's can affect any area from the mouth to the anus. It often affects the lower part of the small intestine called the ileum.

The cause of Crohn's disease is unknown. It may be due to an abnormal reaction by the body's immune system. It also seems to run in some families. It most commonly starts between the ages of 13 and 30.

The most common symptoms are pain in the abdomen and diarrhea. Other symptoms include

  • Bleeding from the rectum
  • Weight loss
  • Fever

Your doctor will diagnose Crohn's disease with a physical exam, lab tests, imaging tests, and a colonoscopy.

Crohn's can cause complications, such as intestinal blockages, ulcers in the intestine, and problems getting enough nutrients. People with Crohn's can also have joint pain and skin problems. Children with the disease may have growth problems.

There is no cure for Crohn's. Treatment can help control symptoms, and may include medicines, nutrition supplements, and/or surgery. Some people have long periods of remission, when they are free of symptoms.

Accutane Inflammatory Bowel Disease Reviews

Thu, 30 Sep 2010

I've just turned 23.

I had severe acne cheeks, hairline and shoulders. I've been on RoAccutane for about 5 months now and when they increased my dose from 40mg to 60mg (actually 5 more mg than I should be taking as I weigh 55kg).. the acne completely cleared.

But now I can't sleep.. like AT ALL. My heart is beating so fast. I feel like the world is going to end. I get panic attacks in crowded places or if I have the slightest disagreement with someone.

I've got one more month to go and I can't wait for this to end and to get my life back. It's ruining my relationship with my mum and my boyfriend.

Sun, 05 Sep 2010

i saw the side effects and didn't want to go on it :(

Tue, 04 Jan 2011

I was on Accutane for about half a year back in 1999, im still suffering from side effect from this medication, joint stiffness, asthma , severe anxiety, depression, bipoler and something is wrong with my stomach most of the doctors ive seen cant seem to find anything wrong and pass it off as acid reflux, i havent had the money or insurance to get to a specialist so ive had to just live with it, which makes working and a social life very difficult.
I wish i never took Accutane.

Thu, 26 Aug 2010

I have been on Accutane for 2 months already and I have dry lips, back pain and problems with my joints. The worse of it showed on my blood test with an increase on my cholesterol. I have been feeling chest pain and get a cold every month 9don't know if this is related to Accutane). I think I am going to stop the drug because this is causing me mor health problems than solutions. My acne is cystic but just on my chin. I will talk to my dermatologist to see if there is another way to do this. I am concern about my health now when I used to be very healthy.

Tue, 22 Feb 2011

I developed severe diarrhea alternating with constipation on a diet pill which also had diuretic properties- ie drying out the system. it caused major problems for my bowel and I suffered from hemmerhoids for a month as a result. I don't think this is an Accutane problem , but perhaps the dehydration caused by Accutane exascerbated an underlying rectal problem.

Wed, 08 Sep 2010

My husband was on Accutane in the early 80's and i chose to go on it about 8-10 years ago. I had hairloss (which my hair is considerably thinner than it was before Accutane), dry/ cracking lips, dry eyes (My eyes are still dry that I have to use drops), bloody noses, I have arthritis in my neck from an injury but the rest of my bones crack constantly... and I find it interesting that we have been unable to get pregnant.. all the 21 years we've been together. This drug was so harsh that it dries everything out. I don't have the cystic painful acne anymore but I still do have constant breakouts of the regular-type acne. I'm wondering about the infertility thing and if there has been any other reports linking this to Accutane. I'm just starting to research this now...

Sat, 22 Jan 2011

Hello, has anyone developed anal fistula/abscess while taking Accutane?

My boyfriend began taking Accutane and within a few days he had stomach problems and firstly, chronic diarrhea, then chronic constipation. After a couple of weeks he stopped taking the pills and asked the doctor for advice. The doctor said that the pills had nothing to do with the problems and so he began taking Accutane again. Three weeks later he was unable to move, in horrendous pain and then in emergency surgery having an enormous, badly infected anal abscess operated on. Recovery is slow and his life is on hold at the moment - not much fun for a 30 year old musician.

I find it all far too coincidental and, after reading how these pills work (basically they 'dry out' all the moisture in your cells) I am convinced these pills are to blame. Has anyone else experienced these kind of problems?

Sun, 25 Mar 2012

I was given Accutane in 1984.I had a broken leg in 1986 that took 11 months to heal. In 1989 was diagnosed with kidney insufficeincy. In 2001 renal failure and a transplant. Painful shoulders and neck, depression treatment. In 2012 found to have arthritis of the spine in my neck. Sounds related to Accutane but not sure. Dont know what

Fri, 25 Dec 2009

i have had acne for about 3 years now and i started to take Accutane. i can defiantly say it's worth it and these crazy symptoms are pretty rare. this website makes it out like your going to die if you take this drug. i really think its worth it and if you have at all any symptoms, just stop taking the drug. Most of the symptoms are not permanent. My dermatologist said that none of her patients have gotten any symptoms, except the occasional head ache, and she just lowered the dose and the head aches went away. My skin is clearing up beautifully and my extremely oilly skin is now nice and evenly moisturized. no more oily skin! i'm just hoping once i get off this drug my skin will be permanently not oily. hope i helped! :-D
