the use of a class of prescription drugs known as 5-alpha reductase inhibitors (5-ARIs), including Propecia, may increase the risk of being diagnosed with a more serious form of prostate cancer (high-grade prostate cancer)
San Diego, CA (PRWEB) August 17, 2012
The media spotlight is often a double-edged sword. No one knows this better than Michael Gregory and his wife Misty. 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 May 8th, 2012, Michael Gregory and his wife Misty filed a lawsuit in Pennsylvania Eastern District Court (case no. 2:2012cv02515) alleging he has suffered several side effects, including sexual dysfunction, since taking Propecia, even though he has stopped its use. 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. Plaintiff claims he started taking Propecia in 2005 and he began experiencing symptoms including cognitive impairment and erectile dysfunction which continued even after he stopped taking the drug.
On May 31st, 2012 the lawsuit was transferred to the federal Propecia MDL (MDL No. 2331) in the District Court, Eastern District of New York. Allegations are similar in the lawsuits; Merck failed to warn on Propecia side effects that could cause permanent and devastating sexual dysfunction.

For that reason, our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”
In June 2011, the US FDA issued a safety alert informing that the use of a class of prescription drugs known as 5-alpha reductase inhibitors (5-ARIs), including Propecia, may increase the risk of being diagnosed with a more serious form of prostate cancer (high-grade prostate cancer).
