Proscar Side Effects

Proscar (5-mg finasteride) is a prescription medication for men with enlarged prostate glands. It works by inhibiting 5-alpha reductase, which disrupts normal levels of male hormones. In rare cases, this can increase levels of female hormones and cause side effects.

Serious side effects of Proscar include:

  • Gynecomastia: Causes the enlargement of glandular tissue, resulting in the growth of male breasts. This disfiguring and embarrassing condition often must be treated with surgery to cut out the mammary gland and remove excess skin.
  • Sexual dysfunction: The FDA updated the label on Proscar in 2011 and 2012 to warn about persistent erectile dysfunction and decreased libido. Other sexual side effects include decreased volume or semen and male infertility.

What is the problem?

The Schmidt Firm, PLLC is nationally recognized as a class action law firm. However, our attorneys are not pursuing justice for our clients through a Proscar class action. Instead, we are filing individual lawsuits and only accepting cases from men with the most serious injuries.

About Class Actions

Class actions are the most well-known type of lawsuit for helping a large number of people seek justice for the same legal claim. Good examples include employment discrimination and defective product litigation. Members of a class action choose a “representative,” and use that person’s case to argue for compensation on behalf of the entire group.

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

For men with severe side effects of Proscar, a class action could have serious disadvantages. Members could be forced to accept higher attorneys’ fees or a “low-ball” settlement. Because individual cases are consolidated together, only one case is typically selected to go to trial. If compensation is awarded, everyone must share it evenly.

Our trial attorneys file individual lawsuits so we can focus on maximizing each of our client’s financial recovery. We only accept cases involving the most serious side effects of Proscar, such as gynecomastia and permanent sexual dysfunction. Men with these side effects who decide to file a lawsuit may be eligible for compensation for pain and suffering, medical expenses, long-term injuries, lost income, and more.
