A Class Action lawsuit has been filed against Propecia by a Canadian woman who claims her sex life was destroyed by the drug. According to court documents obtained by the Law Journal Transactions, plaintiff Beverly SOS told her story in a Law Journal article, “My sex life was dead before I started taking Propecia. The sex was awful. There were no more happy moments.” Ms. SOS added, “All I could think of was how badly I wished I hadn’t taken Propecia.”

Ms. SOS is not alone in complaining about a Propecia class action lawsuit. According to court documents obtained by Law Journal Transactions, the Propecia class action lawsuit was brought by Jannick Fuentes who claimed he suffered substantial injuries due to the drug. According to Mr. Fuentes’ attorney, lawsuit Co-Plaintiff Bruce Alder, Propecia failed to warn Mr. Fuentes of the possible side effect of its use on a penis. Mr. Alder further states, “Propecia’s warning was so minimal it could have been written on a single sheet of paper.” Mr. Alder went on to say, “The harm here is that there is something wrong with our body, not with Propecia.”

Another propecia class action lawsuit involves a man who suffers from male pattern baldness. The man, identified as Caselli has been taking propecia for approximately six years. He was instructed to stop taking the drug at least four months before taking any new medications containing testosterone, including topical applications and oral medications. Caselli, however, did not stop taking propecia until March, leaving his hair and scalp exposed to propecia’s effects. The Law Journal-Tradeshow, Orlando, Florida reported that Caselli suffered “short term, visible adverse reactions” to propecia.

According to the study, published in the March 8 edition of Mayo Clinic News, a study by the National Institute of Health found no evidence that propecia, when used for an extended period of time, may increase the risk of prostate cancer. The study warned that while short term side effects may increase, long term effects are unknown. However, based on the study, researchers recommend men who wish to treat their balding condition with propecia to talk to their doctors first. The report stated that there is “an increasing number of published reports highlighting the increased risk of depression, anxiety, and other psychological disorders after propecia treatment,” which makes the advice even more sound.

Based on the FDA’s warnings, and despite the fact that there is still pending litigation, several Class Action lawsuit plaintiffs have already received substantial monetary compensations. A few of these plaintiffs have already received over five-thousand dollars each. These lawsuits are pending because, in many cases, the company intentionally misstated the true side effects of propecia. While the Class Action lawsuit process may take some time to reach a court settlement, the cost of pursuing such cases can be extremely costly, especially if the plaintiff loses.

The FDA also warns that men who have experienced early ejaculation, or early ejaculation syndrome, should not use propecia. The symptoms of early ejaculation can include difficulty and arousal during intercourse, problems controlling your erection, and early discharge of semen. Men with pre-existing conditions including hypertension, heart disease, diabetes, and hypertension should consult their doctor before using propecia. Men with a history of sexually transmitted diseases should also consult with their doctor before beginning a course of propecia to prevent serious side effects such as bacterial infections, genital warts, or erectile dysfunction. No additional studies have been released pertaining to the 2021 events that have resulted in the FDA warning the product may cause certain side effects.
