Warning labels and the official Merck Propecia website warn that some men suffer problems like decreased libido, erectile dysfunction, and decreased ejaculate. So company says these problems are unusual -occurring in fewer than 2 men percent on Propecia -and get better. Drug works by blocking androgen, a hormone proven to block hair growth and an underlying cause of ‘male pattern’ baldness. You see, the Dateline Special noted that this condition affects millions, about 2/3 of American males. Now pay attention please. In the past, men suffering from the ongoing effects of this drug formed their own online support group to warn others about these dangers. Whenever suing Merck in both the United States and Canada, men have gone on the offensive.
Connecticut Attorney Edward Jazlowiecki has joined two other firms, in New Jersey and NY, in filing the suit.
The suit also claims Finasteride leads to emotional symptoms like anxiety attacks and insomnia that do not go away for years after men stop using the drug.
Identical mechanism in the hormone system that controls hair loss also controls sexual function and a patient’s mental state, and this drug has had devastating effects and destroyed the lives of men who have taken it, Jazlowiecki said. In a small percentage of cases, symptoms persisted even after the medication was stopped. Needless to say, these researchers believe they have discovered a link between the use of Propecia and long lasting aftereffects of male impotency or erectile dysfunction, depression and loss of sexual desire.
Some men experienced a condition known as gynecomastia, enlarged femalelike breasts in men. Actually the March issue of the Journal of Sexual Medicine featured studies by Abdulmaged Traish, PhD, a professor of biochemistry and urology at Boston University School of Medicine, and Michael Irwig, a George Washington University endocrinologist who specializes in male hormone disorders. No mention was made from the darker consequences of this medication. Propecia received the highest marks and was recommended to be used in conjunction with other approaches for maximum benefit. This is the case. Besides, the NBC Dateline special focused on results after one faithful year application of the various procedures, drugs and treatments, including hair transplants, laser combs and Minoxidil or Rogaine. Male consumers and medical doctors have found something else entirely.
Traish and Irwig, Andrew Rynne, a physician in Kildare, OR, posted a warning about Propecia on his website in October. For example, he believes the fraction of men who suffer sexual after effect is higher than 2 percent -but even 2 percent is consequences was recognized for a long time.
BBC radio special and a Swedish TV station zeroed in on these effects as far back as Merck is very familiar with the findings in Europe and were pressured in 2008 to change their warning labels to include warnings that their product may cause irreversible sexual after effects. Jazlowiecki said that amidst the plaintiffs in his suit suffered such severe symptoms that his wife left him, and that another plaintiff suffered from a loss of concentration that forced him to drop out of law school. Traish said doctors need to inform their patients about the potential consequences. Oftentimes you may, and in consequences.
