Update: New Study Links Finasteride to Long-Term Sexual Dysfunction
April 17, 2017 – A study published last month in the mega-journal PeerJ found that men who take finasteride may experience severe sexual side effects for months or even years after they discontinue use of the medication. Specifically, the researchers determined that of 15,634 men exposed to finasteride who had no prior sexual dysfunction, 699 (4.5%) developed new erectile dysfunction and 210 (24.3%) developed new low libido. Of 11,909 finasteride users who had no previous sexual dysfunction, 167 (1.4%) developed persistent ED that lasted for at least 90 days (with a median of 1,348 days) after they quit the medication.

A number of recent studies have been published, which implicate Finasteride to a number of serious and often permanent side effects.
- In one ground breaking study, researchers found that Finasteride caused an overwhelming number of sexual side effects: 94% developed low libido, 92% developed erectile dysfunction, 92% developed decreased arousal, and 69% developed problems with orgasm.
- Additionally, the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) recently issued a warning that Finasteride may increase the risk for high-grade prostate cancer, the most aggressive and deadly form of the disease.

Finasteride Class Action Lawsuit
Although we are a nationally recognized class action firm, the Pharmaceutical Litigation Group at our law firm has decided against the filing of a Finasteride Class Action Suit, and is currently filing individual claims on behalf of injured individuals and/or their family members that have suffered from any of the following: sexual dysfunction, erectile dysfunction, impotence, gynecomastia, male breast cancer, and prostate cancer.
About Class Action Lawsuits
A class action is a type of lawsuit filed with the court on behalf of large group of people or “class” of individuals that have been injured or wronged. The class is represented by the law firm and the case is generally decided upon a single member of the class who is sometimes referred to as the “class representative or class rep.”
Why Our Law Firm Is Filing Individual Finasteride Lawsuits Opposed To a Class Action
In some instances, a class action may offer some advantages, as they aggregate a large number of individualized claims into one representational lawsuit. The aggregation can increase the efficiency of the legal process, lower the costs of litigation and in some cases offer the solution to a common problem wherein small recoveries do not provide the incentive for any individual or law firm to file an individual Finasteride lawsuit.
However, a class action suit can also be a detriment to many class members, as they are often forced into a blanket “low ball settlement” and higher attorney fees.
