January 9, 2001 - Post Profiles Rep. Stupak's push for stronger warnings

January 9, 2001 - Post Profiles Rep. Stupak's push for stronger warnings

Michigan Rep. Bart Stupak and his wife are trying to strengthen consumer safety warnings for the acne drug Accutane following the death of their son who used the drug for five months before committing suicide. Since 1986, the manufacturers of Accutane, Hoffman-La Roche, listed depression as a "possible side" effect on the drug's package, but not suicide. Roche did not include suicide as a possible side effect until after 1998 when the FDA required them to do so. In light of growing potential links between Accutane use and suicide, the FDA now requires the Accutane prescription packaging include a guideline describing the possible side-effects and risks that pharmacists must distribute when filing prescription.
