Viagra, Cialis Claims

Viagra lawsuits have been consolidated before U.S. District Judge Richard Seeborg in the Northern District of California. Plaintiffs allege the manufacturers of the erectile dysfunction drugs were aware of the links to melanoma and hid the risks from consumers. Plaintiffs allege that Viagra (sildenafil citrate) causes or increases the risk of developing melanoma and that defendants failed to warn consumers and health care providers of the alleged risk. There are additional allegations against similar erectile dysfunction drugs, Levitra, Staxyn, and Stendra.

A study reported in the Journal of American Medical Association Internal Medicine showed that men who used Viagra had an 84 percent increased risk of developing melanoma over the course of ten years. Another study, published in Cell Reports, found that phosphodiesterase drugs can increase growth of tumors in the body.

Although the JAMA study showed a connection between Viagra and melanoma, it did not state that the drug causes melanoma, nor did the Cell Reports study consider the link between Cialis and melanoma.

If you have suffered from melanoma after taking Viagra, Cialis or another erectile dysfunction drug, Contact Us before your time runs out. We look forward to hearing from you.
