Cialis Risk for Melanoma Subject of Lawsuits


Santa Clara, CA: The alleged link between Cialis (tadalafil) and melanoma has become the subject of an increasing number of complaints that claim Eli Lilly, the makers of Cialis, failed to warn of the risk.

Approved for erectile dysfunction, Cialis is a competitor drug to Viagra, which is also facing lawsuits over the alleged associated risk for melanoma. There are also a number of cases of men allegedly losing their vision while taking Cialis. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is currently investigating these Cialis cases.

Given the increasing number of claims being filed over melanoma problems with Cialis, a US District Judge has issued orders to approve a Master Long Form Complaint (PDF) and a Master Short Form Complaint (PDF) which are designed to simplify the filing of Cialis melanoma lawsuits.

Cialis is generally assumed to be safe, however data from recently released data suggest that Viagra, Cialis and other drugs from the same class of medications, called PDE5 inhibitors, may actually interfere with the body’s ability to counter the spread of melanoma.

A study published in The JAMA Internal Medicine (June 2014) showed that men who used Viagra were 84 percent more likely to develop melanoma over a period of ten years. The study comprised more than 25,000 men in the US averaging the age of 65, six percent of whom had taken Viagra to treat erectile dysfunction.
