Propecia is prescribed to men for male patterned baldness. There has been an increase in litigation against Merck & Co. alleging failure to warn product liability claims arising from Propecia use. Lawsuits claim that Propecia caused permanent erectile dysfunction and Merck & Co. misled men by stating that any erectile dysfunction was only temporary.
Erectile dysfunction (ED) is sexual dysfunction characterized by the inability to develop or maintain an erection of the penis during sexual performance. Psychological reasons for erectile dysfunction represent only a small percentage of the cause of erectile dysfunction. Physiological reasons account for 90% of erectile dysfunction. Medical research has established that medications can cause erectile dysfunction. There have been a large number of reports of erectile dysfunction following use of Propecia. Embarrassment may account for an underreporting of Propecia related erectile dysfunction.
The challenge facing a Propecia plaintiff is to prove that side effects are caused by Propecia. Erectile dysfunction can be difficult to diagnose. There are both psychological and physiological causes of erectile dysfunction. The key for a Propecia lawyer in building a successful Propecia side effects lawsuit is to gather as much evidence as possible supporting a claim of erectile dysfunction.
