Has anyone heard of a successful case argued against Roche regarding DDD? I remember my back hurting quite badly while taking accutane when I was17-18 but was told that would happen so I didn't worry about it. I didn't realize it was causing permanent damage. At 25 an x-ray revealed abnormalities that the doctor investigated with questions like, "Had I been in a bad car wreck..., Had I jumped from a tall height..., Basically, could I remember injuring my back in any way. I hadn't. He said, "it's gonna get worse as you get older". I blew it off. What could I do? There was no correlation to make with Accutane during those early years. Now, at 45, I've been diagnosed with end stage juvenile DDD. It seems a fusion will be my only relief. It would be nice if Roche paid for it.
Hello. Google just helped me put a relation between my spinal stenosis / degenerative disc disease and the beloved ACCCUTANE. I am a Male 29 y/o. Doctors are perplexed as to why my spine looked like that of a 60 year old. Guess now I know. Took accutane from 16-18. Had back pain ever since but started getting detrimental last year.
Have DDD c5 to C7 on 450mg Lyrica a day now have blurred vision left eye and have been woken in night when whole side of left body goes numb with pressure in head and left side of face numb. Told GP and he said it was the side effects if the pregabalin but did not tell me to stop meds. HAve muscle jerks during the say and lose strength in both hands. Anyone else have these symptoms and do you think I should stop the meds. also take naproxen zapain and oromorth have been off work for 3 months.
