San Diego, CA (PRWEB) May 23, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than men who suffer from Propecia severe adverse events and have filed Propecia Lawsuit. And yet, gossip and rumor-mongering aside, the real story here is being overlooked according to Sean Burke of AttorneyOne.
According to court documents, on Jan. 27th 2012, St. Louis resident, Adam Keune and more than 50 other people from 22 states filed a consolidated complaint in St. Louis Circuit Court (case no. 2012-12222-CC00463) alleging they suffered serious and dangerous side effects from their use Propecia, Proscar and other generic finasteride medications. Propecia is a pill, manufactured by Merck, for use in males only and indicated for the treatment of male pattern hair loss. It was approved by the FDA in 1997. Plaintiffs mention that they took Propecia, Proscar and other generic medications allegedly containing finasteride to treat male pattern baldness. Finasteride allegedly causes serious side effects such as cognitive impairment, depression and various forms of sexual dysfunction. The lawsuit mentions that the side effects continue even after a patient stops taking the medication.
The Propecia MDL (MDL Docket No. 2331) in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of New York alleges Propecia side effects that could cause permanent and devastating sexual dysfunction.

On April 11th, 2012, the U.S. FDA announced changes to the labels for Propecia (finasteride) and Proscar to expand the list of sexual adverse events reported to FDA as some of these events have been reported to continue after the drug is no longer being used. Before the announcement, FDA reviewed 421 postmarketing reports of sexual dysfunction submitted to the Agency’s Adverse Events Reporting System (AERS) database between 1998 and 2011. Of these, 59 cases reported sexual dysfunction that lasted for at least three months following discontinuation of Propecia, and included erectile dysfunction, decreased libido, problems with ejaculation and orgasm disorders.
