When taking medication prescribed by a licensed doctor, you have every right to expect that the medication will be safe. At the very least, patients should expect that a company would provide fair warning to its users regarding the potential side effects of its drugs, especially when those side effects are as serious as those associated with Propecia, including erectile dysfunction, sterility and an increased risk for various forms of cancer.

However, Merck & Co., the manufacturer of Propecia, did not warn the public of these increased risks. Many patients who have used Propecia suffered severe side effects.

Dangerous Side Effects of Propecia

Propecia is a hair loss remedy to reverse the effects of male-pattern baldness. The side effects, not released by Merck, include:

  • Erectile dysfunction
  • Impotence
  • Testicular pain
  • Testicular shrinkage
  • Male breast cancer
  • Prostate cancer

Most people, if informed properly, would not risk these serious side effects just for an improved hairline. Companies that put medical products into the marketplace have a responsibility and a duty to inform the public of the risks associated with these products. If you were not informed of these risks and you suffered any of these side effects as a result of using Propecia, you are entitled to full and fair compensation for all your losses — including medical bills and lost wages — as well as the personal suffering you have endured.
