Erectile dysfunction, sometimes called “impotence,” is the repeated inability to get or keep an erection firm enough for sexual intercourse. The word “impotence” may also be used to describe other problems that interfere with sexual intercourse and reproduction, such as lack of sexual desire and problems with ejaculation or orgasm. Merck did warn men of the potential of sexual side effects, however they failed to warn that these Propecia erectile dysfunction side effects could continue after stopping treatment and become permanent.
Even though many men have experienced similar problems, the effect on each man’s life has been very personal and goes beyond any short term emotional distress. Given the increasing number of men who have had their lives changed after suffering from permanent Propecia erectile dysfunction problems using Propecia, attorneys and courts will likely look to multidistrict litigation (MDL) to more efficiently handle the growing number of men coming forward making claims rather than forming an Propecia class action. Multi-district litigation is different from a Propecia class action lawsuit in that each person is able to bring their own claim rather than having one person who sues on behalf of all people making claims.
Men throughout the United States have looked at filing a Propecia lawsuit based on the serious side effects of this hair loss medication. The Propecia lawsuits claim that the manufacturer was negligent in several ways including:
• marketing and selling Propecia as safe and effective for use in the treatment of hair loss
• failing to adequately warn men of unreasonable and dangerous sexual side effects some of which can be permanent
• failing to conduct adequate pre-clinical testing and post-marketing studies to determine the safety and side effects of Propecia
• failing to use ordinary care in designing, testing and manufacturing Propecia
• failing to exercise due care when advertising and promoting Propecia.
