Propecia Linked to Serious Sexual Side Effects and Many Other Serious Conditions
Thousands of complaints have been filed against Merck involving Propecia. Men all over the country are complaining about serious Propecia side effects, especially sexual side effects. Men who have taken Propecia have suffered from:
Men have also reported other non-sexual side effects such as depression and anxiety, which disappeared after Propecia use was discontinued. In addition, men have reported feeling lethargic, memory less, cognitive impairment, and sometimes even suicidal ideation. Even worse, Propecia has been linked to an increased risk of male breast cancer and a high grade form of prostate cancer.
Thousands of men have suffered permanent side effects related to Propecia despite Merck claiming that side effects would only be temporary. Merck failed to address the harmful side effects that would not go away and exposed men to potentially dangerous health effects as a result.
Documents released by the FDA show that Merck received several complaints of serious and permanent side effects as a result of Propecia as early as 1998. However, despite receiving complaints for over a decade, Merck only changed their warning label in 2008 for European users warning of erectile dysfunction. Merck then changed their warning label in 2012 after the FDA forced Merck to warn consumers of the potential sexual side effects.
In addition, the FDA warned that Propecia, as well as many prostate drugs could increase the risk for high-grade prostate cancer. According to the FDA, some evidence connects Propecia to male breast cancer, a disease that can cause breast enlargement, a nipple discharge, and severe pain in the breast area.
