Plaintiff Seeks Damages in Propecia suit

Transvaginal mesh lawsuit settlementKamal Nahhas filed a lawsuit against Merck & Co., Inc. and Merck Sharpe & Dohme & Dohme Corp. on October 8, 2012. According to his lawsuit, the plaintiff suffers from serious sexual side effects associated with the hair loss drug Propecia, including sexual dysfunction. The plaintiff is claiming fraud, strict liability, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and other counts against the defendants; the lawsuit was filed in the United States’ District Court for the Eastern District of New York.

Lawyer seeks double or triple damages

The plaintiff and his lawyer claim that drug maker Merck failed to warn the public about Propecia-related side effects, even though they knew or should have known about the risk to patients taking the medication. Nahhas’ lawyer is leveling counts of fraudulent concealment, negligence, strict liability, breach of express and implied warranties, fraud, violation of unfair and deceptive trade practices acts, and negligent infliction of emotional distress against the defendants; the plaintiff is seeking compensatory, special, punitive, and/or exemplary damages, requesting that they be double or triple damages as is allowed by the law.

Nahhas claims that he was 44 years old when he began to take Propecia as he was prescribed it for his male pattern baldness. He took the drug between 2004 and 2005. He says that he didn’t suffer from any signs of sexual dysfunction before he began to take the medication, but claims that he began to experience sexual side effects and cognitive impairment as a result of his use of the medication. He also says that these side effects persisted long after he discontinued his use of the medication.
