A Propecia Peyronie’s disease lawsuit has been filed against Merck & Co, Inc. by a Madison County, AL husband and wife.
The plaintiffs claim thatMerck either knew, or should have known, that hair loss drug Propecia can cause serious side effects when used as intended, including cognitive impairment, sexual dysfunction and depression.
The plaintiffs seek compensatory and special damages form Merck, as well as punitive damages because Merck allegedly demonstrated reckless indifference to the health and well-being of the public.
The lawsuit claims that the plaintiff suffered cognitive impairment, as well as severe sexual dysfunction and Peyronie’s disease after taking Propecia to treat male pattern hair loss.
The plaintiffs allege that these side effects continued after the use of Propecia was discontinued and that both husband and wife are experiencing ongoing losses including diminished quality of life and a loss of their sexual relationship.
