  • Propecia wilts man-fun, say litigants
Even as lawsuits against Merck and its anti-baldness pill Propecia consolidate at the federal level, litigants at the state level are still piling on -- right here in St. Louis, for example.

The big problem with Propecia, according to a lawsuit filed last month in city circuit court, is that it treated one man-problem (pattern baldness), but caused other man-problems.

Specifically, the packaging contained no warnings about "erectile dysfunction, reduced libido, reduced sensation and infertility."

And it's not just the men complaining about this, according to the Madison County Record:
The wives who are part of the lawsuit say they, too, were damaged by the companies' actions and the drug's effect on their husbands.
Oh ladies. We feel you. Daily RFT ain't gettin' any either.
