Propecia Sexual Side Effects
Scientific studies have linked Propecia to a number of disturbing sexual side effects which appear to be permanent in some cases. If you were ever a user of Propecia and have experienced any of the below sexual side effects, you may be able to recover compensation in a dangerous drug lawsuit:
- Erectile dysfunction
- Loss of libido or desire for sex
- Reduced semen production
- Ejaculation problems
In addition to these Propecia sexual side effects, men who take Propecia are proven to be at an elevated risk for developing high-grade prostate cancer, the deadliest form of this disease. Other potential Propecia side effects include the growth of male breast tissue (gynecomastia) and male breast cancer.
Propecia Sexual Side Effects Lawsuits
Our Propecia sexual side effects lawsuit attorneys are currently working with a number of clients who have filed dangerous drug lawsuits against Merck & Co. Many of these lawsuits are based on the fact that Propecia sexual side effects appear to be permanent in many cases although Merck denies the permanent nature of Propecia side effects.
Merck claims that Propecia sexual side effects will cease when the medication is discontinued, stating, “In clinical studies for Propecia, a small number of men experienced certain sexual side effects, such as less desire for sex, difficulty in achieving an erection, or decrease in the amount of semen. Each of these side effects occurred in less than 2% of men and went away in men who stopped taking Propecia.”
On the contrary, Propecia sexual side effect lawsuits are now being filed by a number of men who claim the side effects of Propecia persist, even though they have stopped taking the medication. In Europe, Propecia labels warn that erectile dysfunction and Propecia sexual side effects may continue after treatment. This warning is not included on American Propecia labels.
The European warnings suggest that Merck & Co. was aware of the potential for permanent Propecia sexual side effects, but they failed to adequately warn consumers and doctors of this risk. A number of Propecia sexual side effect lawsuits have been filed by men who claim that Merck & Co. was negligent in its duty to warn of all potential side effects of the drug and that Merck chose profits over the wellbeing of their customers.
