“I stopped taking the drug but my sexual problems haven’t gone away and now we are concerned that these Propecia side effects might have ruined the chances of having a family,” he says.
Propecia is the worlds best selling hair loss product
It’s not easy for a man to talk about his sexual problems, but many men who have taken Propecia are so furious with the manufacturer that they welcome this opportunity to warn others about Propecia long-term side effects, such as erectile dysfunction, which can also lead to severe depression, as it did in Paul’s case.
Zero of 34 clinical trials had adequate safety reporting
Available toxicity information in published reports of clinical trials is very limited, of poor quality and appears systematically biased
Consumer-rights law firm Hagens Berman is representing surviving family members in a wrongful death lawsuit against Merck & Co. MRK, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, for allegedly failing to warn of dangerous side effects relating to suicidality and suicide ideation in its prescription hair loss drug Propecia. Hagens
Berman is seeking information from others who have taken Propecia and experienced these side effects.
An indicator of the seriousness and real-world concern over Propecia finasteride remains the implementation of studies designed to delve into why some men experience sexual dysfunction following use of Propecia for either hair loss or problems related to the prostate.
Many plaintiffs allege that not only did Propecia foster sexual dysfunction while actively on the drug, but also that problem persisted long after use of Propecia was halted.
The lawsuits allege men suffered serious Propecia side effects, including sexual dysfunction.
These reported Propecia side effects in men are also allegedly longer lasting than some plaintiffs say they were led to believe.
These side effects don’t appear to be “short-term” as Merck, the manufacturer, indicates.
Propecia Leads to Anxiety and DepressionSam (not his real name) should be in the prime of life: he is 32 years old, blessed with good looks and health and he has a great job. But this past year has been a nightmare.
While it has been two years since the watershed year of 2012 when studies and concern surfaced in a big way over Propecia finasteride, the issue has since been quietly bubbling at a slow boil, with the Propecia lawsuit ledger continuing to escalate.
As of June 30, according to Q2 summaries filed by Propecia manufacturer Merck & Co. with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC), some 1,280 lawsuits involving some 1,550 plaintiffs were on the books.
Research originating from the George Washington University School of Medicine and Health Services discovered that a vast majority of Propecia finasteride study participants experienced Propecia sexual dysfunction.
And yet Paul Innes, who hails from Kingston upon Hull in the UK, was told by his family doctor that he had just a two percent chance of experiencing low libido or other sexual problems in association with Propecia finasteride use.
Adding to the tally of lawsuits making their way into the Propecia multidistrict litigation (MDL) in the Eastern District of New York is a recent case filed by a Minnesota couple alleging serious and potentially permanent harm resulting from the husband’s use of finasteride as a baldness treatment.
