Accutane and Abdominal Pain
Abdominal pain is characterized by pain in the abdominal area, stomach region or belly. Symptoms of abdominal pain may mean that damage is occurring to your internal organs, including the liver, pancreas, intestines and esophagus. If permanent damage has occurred to your organs, they may not get better after stopping Accutane treatment.
Abdominal pain may be associated with a variety of problems. Some may not occur directly in the abdomen itself, but may lead to discomfort in that area. The condition causing the abdominal pain may or may not dictate the severity of the pain itself. For instance, mild conditions such as bloating or gas may cause severe pain in the abdominal area, while severe life-threatening conditions may only cause minor discomfort. These life-threatening conditions include early appendicitis, ulcerative colitis or Crohn's disease. If you begin to suffer from severe stomach pain, bowel pain, painful swallowing, heartburn, diarrhea or rectal bleeding, stop taking Accutane immediately and contact your physician.
