Viagra

Viagra is a drug designed to treat erectile dysfunction (ED). The first ED drug of its kind approved by the FDA, Viagra has been available for five years more than other ED drugs such as Levitra and Cialis. Because Viagra has been prescribed for more years than its counterparts, more litigation against the drug exists.

Use of Viagra has been linked to:

  • Sudden death
  • Cardiac events
  • Blindness
  • A sudden drop in blood pressure in some patients

NAION: Another Name for a Serious Condition

Pfizer, the manufacturer of Viagra, faces numerous defective drug lawsuits claiming they failed to adequately warn the public about the dangers of NAION, the acronym for a condition known as “non-arteritic anterior ischemic optic neuropathy,” also called eye stroke. Pfizer has argued that no evidence exists linking Viagra to NAION, but attorneys are seeking a class action lawsuit on behalf of the 24 million men who have used Viagra since it came on the market.

Viagra lawsuits focus on physician reports claiming Viagra affects blood circulation to the optic nerve, resulting in vision loss. Attorneys are seeking to force Pfizer to place a ‘black box’ warning on the drug’s label, the strongest warning any medication can receive.
