Propecia

been harmed by Propecia

Propecia is marketed by Merck. It contains the chemical finasteride, and it was introduced in 1997 to treat male pattern baldness. Nearly half of all men experience male pattern baldness, and more than a million have taken Propecia for its treatment.

Not long after, however, the FDA began to be concerned about the side effects of Propecia. It was found to be associated with sexual dysfunction. Men who take the drug experience infertility, erectile dysfunction and reduced libido, among other sexual side effects. Even more alarming, in many cases these conditions continued even after patients had stopped taking the drug.

In April of 2012 the Food and Drug Administration announced that it was requiring Merck to add a new warning to the Propecia label. This warning concerned “libido disorders, ejaculation disorders, and orgasm disorders that continued after discontinuation of the drug.” By that time, men around the country had already filed lawsuits against Merck. Hundreds of lawsuits have been filed against the company.

In 20120, a professor at George Washington University published a study on Propecia in the Journal of Sexual Medicine. Of the men in the study who had taken finasteride, 92% had developed erectile dysfunction and even more were experiencing decreased libido. Many of the men continued to experience these symptoms long after they stopped taking the drug.

Propecia can also cause depression. In fact, in 2012 Merck began to include depression as a possible side effect on the product label. Other possible side effects include testicular pain and male breast cancer.
