Viagra

One of the most popular sex drugs, Viagra is a prescription medication that is used to treat erectile dysfunction disorder in men. While the drug is often regarded as a magic pill for men, taking Viagra can pose health risks, some of which may be severe. Some of these health concerns were not made known by Pfizer, Viagra’s manufacturer, at the time of the drug’s release. If you have been adversely affected by any of the side effects, you may be able to file a Viagra lawsuit against Pfizer.

 

Risks of Viagra

Today, the risks of taking Viagra are well published. These include:

  • Sudden vision loss in one or both eyes;
  • An erection that will not go away, leading to permanent damage of the penis;
  • Sudden hearing decrease or hearing loss;
  • Increased risk of melanoma (skin cancer);
  • Increased risk of heart attack and heart disease; and
  • Increased risk of stroke.

Because many of these risks, such as the increased risk of developing melanoma, the most deadly form of skin cancer, were not published upon the drug’s release, many men have filed a viagra lawsuit directly against Pfizer asserting that Pfizer failed to conduct adequate safety testing on the drug prior to its release, or/and failed to publish known risks of taking Viagra.

 

Recovering Economic and Noneconomic Damages

Men who have taken Viagra and suffered adverse results, as well as those men’s families, deserve compensation for their losses. Filing a lawsuit against Pfizer, or joining an existing class action suit, can help you to recover the financial damages that you need most. These include damages for all economic losses and future economic losses related to injuries caused by Viagra, as well as noneconomic and intangible injuries, like mental anguish.

 

Filing a Viagra Lawsuit

All manufacturers of prescription drugs have a responsibility to conduct thorough safety tests on the drugs, and to make any risks of taking the drug known to the public. When a manufacturer fails to do so, they have breached the duty of care owed to the consumer, and can be held liable for all damages as such.
