Men who used Propecia and experienced certain side effects may have legal recourse. Allegedly, the hair loss drug has been linked to a number of Propecia side effects, ranging from permanent sexual dysfunction to cancer. Because the manufacturer of Propecia may have failed to adequately warn patients and provide accurate information about the risks associated with this prescription medication, men who suffered from Propecia sexual side effects or were diagnosed with prostate or male breast cancer after using the medication may have legal recourse.

While warnings about Propecia erectile dysfunction are outlined on the drug’s label, Merck allegedly provided inaccurate and misleading information about Propecia sexual side effects, which can include:
Essentially, it has been alleged that many men using this drug were unaware that these Propecia sexual side effects can continue for months or years after use. As early as 2003, data suggested that only 50 to 59% of men suffering from Propecia sexual side effects had the dysfunction resolve after stopping use of the drug. While warning labels in other countries have been updated to warn patients that sexual problems may continue after use of the medication has stopped, such adequate warnings have yet to be provided to consumers in the United States.

In addition to Propecia sexual side effects, the hair loss drug has also been associated with another serious side effect. In June 2011, the FDA warned that Propecia as well as several prostate drugs could increase the risk of high-grade prostate cancer. While Propecia contains the same active ingredient as Proscar, a prostate drug manufactured by Merck, it only contains one-fifth the dose. However, the FDA stated that the hair loss drug should carry the same warning regarding high-grade prostate cancer, an aggressive disease which grows and metastasizes faster than low-grade prostate cancer. While the FDA Propecia and cancer warning only pertains to prostate cancer, the hair loss drug has also reportedly been linked to male breast cancer, a disease which causes nipple discharge, lumps or pain in the breast area and breast enlargement.
Men who suffered from erectile dysfunction, cancer or other alleged Propecia side effects may have legal recourse. Compensation may be available for these individuals due to the manufacturer's possible failure to properly warn about the drug's side effects and failure to provide accurate information that sexual problems could continue after use of the drug is stopped.
