Propecia Lawsuits

A lawsuit have been filed against Merck & Co. alleging serious Propecia side effects including Propecia sexual dysfunction in men.  Among allegations are that Propecia can cause anxiety attacks and insomnia. Plaintiffs allege that Propecia long term side effects, such as the emotional symptoms, remain years after patients have stopped taking the medication. Some
Propecia patients may be taking Proscar, which is a higher dose version of finasteride.

In the US, a lawsuit filed against Merck & Co. on behalf of men who have taken Propecia, also marketed under the brand name Proscar, alleges the medication has serious side effects including a risk of sexual dysfunction and mental and emotional difficulties. Furthermore, the lawsuit alleges, Merck failed to adequately warn users about those serious side effects, even after regulators in Europe demanded a stronger warning label, highlighting the risks of the drug.

A lawyer for the plaintiffs argues that Propecia’s side effects, including sexual dysfunction, anxiety and insomnia, have a devastating impact on the men who used the medication. The lawyer also alleges that, contrary to Merck’s claims, those side effects remain years after the men stop using the medication. Some men further allege they experienced difficulty breathing, loss of concentration and loss of memory.

Propecia (known generically as finasteride) is approved by the US Food and Drug Administration to reduce hair loss in men and is also used to treat an enlarged prostate. Propecia, manufactured and marketed by Merck, is currently distributed worldwide.
