Propecia is a medication manufactured by Merck & Co for the treatment of male patterned baldness. 2012 brought media awareness to the plight of many men who used Propecia and suffered persistent sexual dysfunction. A study published in August 2012 in the Journal of Clinical Psychiatry reported men who experienced sexual dysfunction after Propecia use also experienced high rates of depression. In April 2012, persistent erectile dysfunction, orgasm disorders, ejaculation disorders, and decreased libido were added to Propecia’s warning label by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA).
As post Propecia male users realize that sexual side effects are persisting, more are also experiencing psychological stress and depression. Medical studies suggest that “persistent” sexual dysfunction following Propecia use may actually be permanent in some cases. Sexual dysfunction emotionally scars young men who seek intimate relationships and families.
Men who have taken Propecia and suffered sexual problems may have a claim against Merck & Co. A component of a claim is the depression and emotional injuries caused by the persistent sexual dysfunction. If a man has suffered any sexual side effects while taking Propecia, he should investigate whether he has a claim for compensation because of his sexual injuries. Compensation for permanent sexual dysfunction, past and future medical expenses, loss of work, and emotional distress should be evaluated. Oracle Law Group is investigating Propecia cases.
