The Doctors discuss the case of a teen boy who claims his acne medication led him to murder someone.
The teen’s defense is claiming that the side effects of the medication he was taking may be to blame for his aggression and the stabbing of a 20-year-old woman.
Psychologist Dr. Judy Ho notes there have not been any clinical studies that have shown a link between taking acne medication and a behavior like murder. She notes there may be a crossover between those with acne and mental health issues like depression, but she goes on to explain that many people who use acne medication find their depression improves once they start the treatment.
“You cannot blame a pill and its side effect for stabbing someone to death,” ER physician Dr. Travis Stork says.
The Doctors stress if you are considering taking an acne medication to discuss it and any possible side effects with your doctor.
