Levitra (vardenafil) is a medication that is nearly identical to Viagra (sildenafil). Both medications improve blood-flow to the penis by inhibiting the enzyme PDE5, which treats erectile dysfunction.
FDA Investigates Risk
In June 2016, the FDA announced that it was evaluating new evidence of a “serious risk” of skin melanoma from Levitra. The announcement came after several concerning studies linked erectile dysfunction drugs and melanoma.
Studies Linking Melanoma and Erectile Dysfunction Drugs
A study published by Harvard researchers in 2014 found an 84% increased risk of melanoma among men on Viagra. The conclusions were based on 10 years of data on 25,000 men.
What is the problem?
The Clark Firm, LLP is nationally recognized as a class action law firm, but our lawyers are not filing a Levitra class action. Many lawsuits have been filed by victims of melanoma who used erectile dysfunction drugs, but not as part of a class action. Instead, they are individual lawsuits.
About Class Actions
Class actions are useful for large groups of people who are seeking compensation for similar legal claims. They choose a “class representative” and fight for compensation on behalf of everyone. If compensation is awarded, everyone shares equally.
Why Our Law Firm is Filing Individual Lawsuits as Opposed to a Class Action
Class actions can have disadvantages. They may have to accept massive attorneys’ fees or a “low-ball” settlement. Most class actions do not maximize compensation for individuals with severe side effects.
Instead of a class action, our lawyers file individual lawsuits. We hold drug-makers responsible for failing to warn about side effects. If you were injured by Levitra, you could be entitled to compensation for your pain and suffering, medical expenses, and more.
