Millions of people across the United States take prescription medications to help treat health conditions, ranging from heart disorders to depression. Many prescription drugs are available to help treat skin conditions and hair conditions, too. Unfortunately, some of these drugs have been deemed dangerous and may cause side effects worse than the condition that they treat.

Common side effects associated with skin and hair medication may include:

  • Skin dryness
  • Irritation
  • Rash
  • Peeling
  • Swelling of the skin
  • Headache
  • Dizziness
  • Weakness
  • Allergic reaction (hives, difficulty breathing, swelling)


Hair and skin medications that may cause serious side effects include:

  • Accutane — An acne medication that was eventually pulled from the market after being linked to severe birth defects, miscarriages, infant deaths, and causing inflammatory bowel disease.
  • Elidel and Protopic — These medications prescribed to treat eczema were given a black box warning by the FDA regarding their link to skin cancer and lymphoma
  • Propecia — A drug used to treat male-pattern baldness and enlarged prostate, Propecia was linked to several male sexual dysfunctions, including erectile dysfunction and lower libido.
  • Topical acne medications — Acne medications including the active ingredients benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid have been linked to serious and potentially life-threatening allergic reactions or severe irritation.

Your Questions Answered

We have straight answers to difficult questions to help you make critical decisions, navigate legal process and help you get justice.

A tort is a civil wrongful act committed by a person or company that results in harm to another person. A mass tort is when multiple victims are injured by the same single tort.
A court will consider if a mass tort lawsuit is permissible by determining:
  • whether a large number of plaintiffs are involved
  • whether the plaintiffs are located near or far from each other;
  • whether the injuries sustained are similar among the plaintiffs;
  • whether the claims arose from the same cause (defective toy, car part, oil spill, etc.)
  • Defective products, such as car parts, toys, or other consumer goods.
  • Pharmaceutical drugs, such as those that are later linked to severe or fatal health consequences
  • Environmental hazards, such as polluted water sources contaminated by nearby industrial sites or an oil leak.
Thousands of lawsuits across the country may be filed with a mass tort. These lawsuits are filed in numerous federal district courts. In a mass tort, federal judges will consolidate the thousands of lawsuits into a single proceeding. One judge in a single federal district court will oversee litigation, allowing for consistent rulings and a more expeditious process for the plaintiffs.
In a mass tort, each plaintiff (injured person) has an individual claim resulting from their unique damages. In a class action, many plaintiffs are considered collectively. Similarly, in a mass tort, each individual's claim "value" is unique to the severity of their injuries. In a class action, plaintiffs generally suffer injuries of similar severity, resulting in the same amount of compensation value.
If you have been injured or suffered illness due to a recalled drug, having an expert witnesses can be essential to proving your claim. Thomas J. Henry has spent decades building professional relationships with leading experts including:
  • Pharmacologists
  • Toxicologists
  • Regulatory Compliance Consultants
  • Forensic toxicologists
