Avodart Class Action

Were you prescribed a drug from GlaxoSmithKline called Avodart for the treatment of an enlarged prostate?

If you are currently using Avodart there are a few things you should be aware of concerning this medication and some of the side effects that’s been linked to its usage:

  • Gynecomastia
  • Depression
  • Impotence
  • Erectile dysfunction

Those are some of the side effects caused by Avodart, but there have been other symptoms which haven’t been formally addressed including complaints of joint weakness, muscle pain and spasms and reports of bones popping and cracking.

Are you suffering from any of these symptoms?

If you are you may be entitled to damages as part of a class action suit against pharmaceutical drug manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline, the company that manufactures Avodart.

Don’t suffer in silence any more. There’s help for you and all you have to do is pick up your telephone and call us. We are ready to take your phone call and help you begin the healing process.

Were you aware that back in 2011, the FDA had issued a press release about the inherent dangers associated with Avodart?

Some of what was reported in that press release dated June 9th 2011 included the following information…

the U.S. Food & Drug Administration announced that Avodart and other 5-alpha reductase inhibitor (5-ARI) drugs will include new cautionary language highlighting data suggesting a link to high-grade prostate cancer tumors.”

The report went on to say

The data comes from two new studies that showed the drugs cut the overall risk of contracting prostate cancer, but boosted the chance of developing the more deadly high-grade tumors.

Here is some important information about the drug Avodart and some of its indications.

Avodart is a drug manufactured by pharmaceutical giant GlaxoSmithKline, and approved by the FDA for use in the treatment of an enlarged prostate gland.

Avodart does this by blocking the enzyme that transforms testosterone into DHT (dihydrotestosterone). DHT is responsible for enlarging the prostate gland.

Some of the symptoms of someone suffering with an enlarged prostate include:

  • Issues with delays of the urinary stream
  • Urine leakage after urination
  • Signs of blood in urine or semen
  • Pain in the bones of the pelvic region or lower back

The above conditions are just some of what men between the age of 50 and older may experience with the onset of prostate cancer, and the reason why many men have been treated with Avodart.

There is also more evidence presented in a report by Canadian health officials. The report is dated 3/19/12 and included the following information:

Canadian health officials are warning the public that the controversial prescription medications Propecia, Proscar and Avodart may be linked to an increased risk for developing high-grade prostate cancer.”
