“We continue to hear from men who have suffered persistent sexual side effects after they stopped using Propecia. We look forward to progress in this litigation in the coming year,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing the victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is actively investigating Propecia lawsuits on behalf of men who experienced long-lasting sexual side effects, allegedly due to Propecia.
Propecia Sexual Dysfunction
Propecia was approved by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in 1997 as a treatment for male pattern hair loss. Propecia prevents the conversion of testosterone to dihydrotestoterone (DHT) in the body, which has been implicated in the balding process. However, a growing body of research has pointed to an association between Propecia and persistent sexual dysfunction, including erectile dysfunction, loss of libido and orgasm disorder. In April 2012, the FDA announced that the Propecia label would be updated to advise that some men had experienced problems with libido, ejaculation and orgasms that continued after use of the drug was ended. Additional information was also added to the Propecia label describing reports of male infertility and poor semen quality that normalized or improved after use of the drug was stopped.*
In addition to the Propecia litigation underway in New Jersey, additional claims have been consolidated in a federal multidistrict litigation in U.S District Court, Eastern District of New York (Propecia (Finasteride) Product Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2331). Alleged victims of Propecia sexual dysfunction may be entitled to compensation for medical expenses, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.
