Propecia Website Launched by Schmidt & Clark, LLP
May 25, 2012 Business News(PRLEAP.COM) Schmidt & Clark, LLP, a nationally recognized products liability law firm announced today that it has recently launched a new website regarding Propecia.
Although Propecia (generic: finasteride) can be effective at slowing and even reversing typical male pattern baldness (MPB), it can have a number of potentially-irreversible side effects including impotence, erectile dysfunction (ED), gynecomastia, male breast cancer, and even prostate cancer. This is this situation facing an increasing number of American men who took Propecia without being warned and are now suffering the consequences.
A recent study conducted by researchers at the Center for Andrology and Division of Endocrinology at George Washington University looked at the long-term sexual complications experienced by former Propecia users. The research involved 71 healthy men between the ages of 21-46 who suffered from sexual side effects lasting at least three months, despite discontinuing treatment with Propecia. More than 90% of the test subjects reported experiencing low libido, erectile dysfunction and decreased sexual arousal. Nearly a quarter of those interviewed reported complications lasting for more than six years.
"This is the first trial to show the medication can cause persistent sexual side effects," said Michael Irwig, co-author of the study. "And the risk needs to be known when men are contemplating taking the medication and doctors are prescribing the medication."
Michael E. Schmidt, Managing Partner of Schmidt & Clark, LLP, has noticed and alarming number of inquiries to the firm related to Propecia. Mr. Schmidt stated, "Our firm has substantial expertise in the area of product liability litigation. As a result, we have received a number of inquiries from Propecia users."
The Products Liability Litigation Group at the law firm is an experienced team of trial lawyers that focus exclusively on the representation of plaintiffs in a Propecia lawsuit. The firm is pursing individual litigation nationwide and currently accepting new Propecia cases in all 50 states.
If you or a loved one has taken Propecia and subsequently suffered from Propecia side effects, the firm suggests that you visit their website. The site includes detailed information, news and more regarding this drug and the litigation surrounding it.
