Merck & Co. Slapped With Wrongful Death Suit Over Popular Hair Loss Drug

Consumer-rights law firm Hagens Berman has filed a first-of-its-kind lawsuit accusing Merck & Co. (MRK: Quote) for allegedly failing to warn of the dangerous side effects like suicidality and suicide ideation of its prescription hair loss drug Propecia, which contains the active ingredient finasteride.

Hagens Berman is representing surviving family members of a person who spiraled into a deep depression followed by suicide ideation while taking Propecia in 2008, which eventually led him to take his own life even after he stopped taking the drug in 2012.
