Has anyone heard of a successful case argued again...
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.

There seems to be lots of
There seems to be lots of links online related to accurate and degenerative disc disease but I cannot yet find any lawsuits or successful lawsuits. Have you had any luck researching this or working with attorneys? I am in a similar situation with DDD at age 33 and not explained by any other reasoning. It's only getting worse and I'm concerned about my future.

I only took Accutane for 90
I only took Accutane for 90 days and it seemed to work well- you probably took it longer. I was older when I took it and the worse of the acne was over with according to genetics- I had no ill effects from taking it except it left me with dry eye syndrome- which is manageable but does present lots of problems in dry areas like the desert- Sorry about your disc degeneration- I would have done anything to get rid of the acne trust me.
