Tests: Accutane Prevents One Type of Blindness

Posted by news on March 18, 2003 at 11:57:15:

Doctors may be able to tap an unwanted side effect of the acne drug Accutane to help prevent a type of as yet untreatable blindness that afflicts 30,000 children and young adults in the U.S. The blindness is known as Stargardt's macular degeneration. There have been many posts here as to the dangers of Accutane. The article touches on links between Accutane and depression, psychosis, and suicide.
