One of the most widely prescribed synthetic drugs for acne treatment is Accutane.
I’ll cut to the chase.
The bastards that made, marketed and sold this product should be in jail. Do not buy or even look for this “product”. It is just another in the long list of catastrophic mistakes unleashed on the public by drug companies. Like I told folks repeatedly when this poison was being sold on the market, it will eventually be removed and surely enough, it was. After it’s makers made billions from it first.
Here are my ramblings from this Drug Watch article:
“Accutane is linked to serious side effects like birth defects, thoughts of suicide, depression and bowel disorders.”
My Rambling: Lovely ain’t it? The “side effects” are worse than the symptoms. Take this drug, it will temporarily suppress your acne but there’s a chance you’ll give birth to a seriously deformed child or you may even kill yourself so in that case, acne won’t be an issue. Excellent work!
“Roche stopped manufacturing it in 2009, but there was no official recall”
My Rambling: And why the hell not? If you or I made something that deformed and killed people, we’d be in jail. These cash rich companies literally get away with murder. When in doubt, follow the $ trail.
“…Since then, a number of studies have connected Accutane to numerous side effects ranging from birth defects to Crohn’s disease to suicide. Although the drug was hailed by dermatologists as a breakthrough treatment for patients with severe acne, Accutane’s dangerous side effects affected thousands of patients during the past 30 years.”
My Rambling: WTF?
Hailed by DOCTORS as a breakthrough? These bloody dermatologists who hailed it as a “breakthrough” WENT TO SCHOOL. They went to all sorts of esteemed schools, wrote thesis after thesis, looked at “peer-reviewed” studies and the whole 9 yards didn’t they? Or do they just hand out dermatologist licenses in cereal boxes now?
This just goes to show you when an entire modality is based around treatment, greed and money rather than genuine care and healing, people are put last. If someone is after truth and not self interest, problems like this would never arise.
Final Rambling: Anyone who tries to defend these devils by saying they had thousands of lawsuits against them so they’ve gotten what they deserve is kidding themselves. It’s all factored in. They do not give a damn about you, your acne or anything else. They worship the $. End of story:
Step 1: Make a drug that hurts, deforms and kills people.
Step 2: Sell billions of dollars worth of it around the world to unsuspecting people
Step 3: Wait for lawsuits to arrive
Step 4: Pay out tens of millions to the victims and their families
Step 5: Enjoy the remaining billions they made via deception and lies
Step 6: Rinse and repeat but not before laughing their asses off all the way to the banks (plural).
Get this: In the year 2000 alone, they sold $760,000,000 worth of Accutane. In one year! How much did they sell over the 40 years this was on the market? You’re talking in numbers most folks never venture to explore. Think about that next time you hear a drug company got fined a few million dollars.
And the fact is, all this acne business can be healed by detoxing, fasting and eating fruits and vegetables, hahah.
What a joke these companies and the people who represent them are.
Like, share, comment. Spread the healing. Not the acne.
