Erectile Dysfunction Drug Lawsuits

Viagra and Cialis are prescribed for the treatment of erectile dysfunction. A study in the Journal of the American Medical Association Internal Medicine (JAMA) found a link between Viagra and melanoma, the most dangerous form of skin cancer. Hundreds of lawsuits have been filed against Pfizer, the manufacturer of Viagra, by users who were diagnosed with melanoma.

What is Erectile Dysfunction Drug?

Viagra (sildenafil), Cialis (tadalafil) and other ED drugs belong to a class of medication known as PDE5-inhibitors. These medications have been approved by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for the treatment of ED. Viagra and Cialis function in a similar way; both medications help relax muscles in the body and promote adequate blood flow.

What is Happening with Erectile Dysfunction Drugs?

A 2014 study published in JAMA determined that sildenafil may be associated with a higher risk of developing melanoma. The study evaluated data from more than 25,000 men who used sildenafil and found that both subjects who recently used the drug and those who used the drug at any time previously had almost twice the risk of developing melanoma after considering other risk factors. The PDE5-inhibitor in sildenafil appears to activate a pathway that may trigger melanoma. Others kinds of skin cancers have not shown a higher rate of occurrence with ED medications. Melanoma is the fifth most common cancer diagnosed in the United States and the most likely of all skin cancers to grow, spread, and cause death.

Since Viagra’s introduction to the marketplace, users have brought lawsuits against Pfizer for various adverse health conditions associated with the drug. As of April 2019, over 900 lawsuits alleging that Viagra causes melanoma have been pending in federal court in California. Lawsuits claim that Pfizer concealed pertinent information related to the risks of melanoma and recklessly promoted the drug without necessary warnings. In 2016, the FDA stated that it is evaluating the need for regulatory action with respect to ED drugs.
