Generic Drug Nightmare » 065

Camille Baruch, 18, Rockville, Md. took the generic form of Accutane and developed ulcerative colitis and had to have her large intestine removed and has had several other surgeries since then. Even though the drug likely caused her condition, she can’t sue the drug maker because of the Supreme Court case. She lays on the couch at home in Rockville after being released from the hospital. Her dad Steve pats her head while her mom Annette prepares dinner in the background.
