Propecia Sexual Side Effects
Propecia is the most popular drug used to treat male pattern baldness, and it has been prescribed tomillions of men. A number of these men have unfortunately experienced traumatic Propecia sexual side effects, including:
- Testicular pain
- Male breast tissue growth (gynecomastia)
- Male breast cancer
- Erectile dysfunction
- Ejaculation problems
- Decrease in sexual desire
- Decrease in semen production
Propecia Prostate Cancer
A number of scientific studies have linked Propecia with severe and potentially life-threatening side effects, one of which is Propecia prostate cancer. Men who take Propecia are at a heightened risk for developing high-grade prostate cancer, the most aggressive and fatal form of this disease.
Two plaintiffs filed a Propecia lawsuit against Merck & Co. in February 2011 after they suffered from potentially permanent Propecia sexual side effects. In their claims, both men cited a marked difference in the Propecia warning labels in Europe compared to Propecia warnings in the United States as evidence that Merck was negligent in its duty to warn American patients of the risk of permanent Propecia sexual side effects such as erectile dysfunction and impotence.
The Propecia warning labels in Europe caution that side effects such as erectile dysfunction may continue even after Propecia treatment is stopped. In the United States, however, the Propecia label states that “these (sexual) side effects occurred in less than 2% of men and went away in men who stopped taking Propecia because of them.” It is this glaring difference in Propecia warning labels that is the basis for a number of lawsuits our Propecia attorneys in MA are familiar with. The discrepancy in Propecia labels shows that Merck was, in fact, aware of the potential of permanent Propecia sexual side effects but failed to adequately warn of this danger in the United States.
