Melanoma Class Action Lawsuit

Eli Lilly & Co. and Pfizer Inc. are facing hundreds of lawsuits from men who were diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer after taking Cialis (tadalafil) or Viagra (sildenafil) in erectile dysfunction drugs. The lawsuits are not part of a class action. Instead, they are individual lawsuits that are centralized into one federal court.

How Many Lawsuits Have Been Filed?

By May 2017, over 400 melanoma lawsuits nationwide were filed in Multi-District Litigation (MDL No. 2691) in the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California under Judge Richard Seeborg — In RE: Viagra and Cialis Products Liability Litigation.

Does Adcirca Cause Melanoma?

Adcirca contains tadalafil, the same active ingredient as Cialis, and both drugs are sold by Eli Lilly & Co. In 2015, tadalafil was linked to a 21% increased risk of melanoma. The FDA has been investigating the risk of melanoma from Adcirca since July 2016.

Study Finds 84% Increased Risk of Melanoma

Tadalafil increases blood-flow to certain parts of the body by blocking an enzyme called PDE5 (phosphodiesterase type-5). In 2014, this class of drugs was linked to an 84% increased risk of melanoma. Other studies suggest that PDE5 inhibitors could make melanoma more aggressive, likely to spread, and invasive.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but we are not currently filing an Adcirca class action lawsuit. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits against drug-makers for people with melanoma skin cancer.

About Class Actions

Class actions combine a lot of individual legal claims into one lawsuit. This is useful when everyone is seeking a relatively small payout, such as reimbursement for excessive bank overdraft fees, but class actions can have disadvantages for people with more serious injuries.

Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action

Any payout, jury award, or settlement must be divided among everyone who joins the class action. This can be a problem for people with far more serious injuries than the average plaintiff.

Our lawyers specialize in holding drug-makers accountable for failing to warn about severe side effects. If you were diagnosed with melanoma skin cancer from tadalafil, you may be eligible to seek compensation for your injury and medical expenses by filing a lawsuit.
