Learn More About Viagra® Lawsuits

News / August 11, 2015

Discuss your potential case with an attorney at the Hollis Law Firm regarding a potential Viagra® lawsuit.

The global drug manufacturer, Pfizer, has gained billions of dollars from its most popular drug, Viagra®. Originally developed to treat chest pain and high blood pressure in certain vessels, Viagra became most well-known in 1998 when it was approved by the FDA as the first oral treatment for erectile dysfunction (ED) in the United States.

Since then, more than 45 million men have used this drug, and it can even be ordered online with a prescription. Viagra has helped millions of men with their impotence problems, but many individuals have suffered harmful or even deadly side effects in relation to this drug.

One particularly dangerous side effect that has been linked to the use of Viagra is an increased risk of the deadliest skin cancer type, melanoma. A 2014 study found that the drug used in Viagra (sildenafil) nearly doubles the risk of developing melanoma. There is no mention on the Viagra label to warn consumers of this potentially deadly side effect.

There are many reasons why an individual who has allegedly suffered from melanoma caused by Viagra might file a lawsuit. Treating melanoma can be extremely expensive. Patients can incur costs from skin biopsies, surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and other treatments. Illnesses such as cancer can cause major distress for the individual and their families.

The experienced lawyers at Hollis Law Firm have a comprehensive understanding of the suffering from melanoma linked to Viagra and are ready to assist those who wish to evaluate their legal options.
