Finasteride Side Effects Lawsuit: The Dangers of FinPlus Products
Many people are experiencing serious health symptoms after taking hair growth medications marketed as “Compounded Finasteride FinPlus” or “FinPlus.” These products may produce side effects consistent with minoxidil overdose or toxicity, sometimes leading to severe injury or even death. A finasteride side effects lawsuit may help the injured victim receive just compensation for losses caused by the injuries.
If you or a loved one have experienced any adverse symptoms after taking the hair regrowth medication FinPlus, you may be entitled to damages associated with the dangerous blend of ingredients present in the drugs.
FinPlus: About the Contaminated Batch
In April 2020, patients received word that the compounding pharmacy producing the specially blended FinPlus drug had shipped a “bad batch” of FinPlus capsules. These capsules reached patients in South Florida, namely Boca Raton, Florida. At least 70 patients have allegedly ingested the contaminated capsules, and more patients throughout the country could be at risk as well.
The bad batch of FinPlus was possibly tainted with another drug, minoxidil. Minoxidil is used for heart disease as well as hair regrowth and is associated with various health risks. Minoxidil may be responsible for the toxicity and overdose issues.
FinPlus and Finasteride Side Effects
Consumers who have ingested contaminated FinPlus pills are reporting severe side effects and reactions. These side effects may include:
- Heart palpitations
- Hypotension (low blood pressure)
- Irregular heart rate (tachycardia)
- Profuse sweating
- Shortness of breath
- Excessive fatigue
These symptoms may indicate minoxidil overdose or toxicity. This condition can lead to serious medical conditions or disability; in some cases, it can be fatal. Contact a lawyer if you believe you have suffered any of these symptoms or injuries after taking a FinPlus product.

What Is Finasteride?
Finasteride is the generic version of the hair growth drug popularly known as Propecia. It is prescribed to both men and women for regrowing hair.
A dose of FinPlus contains 1.25 mg of finasteride, which is 25 percent higher than most other hair growth products that can be purchased from pharmacies.
What Is Finasteride Used For?
As mentioned, finasteride is primarily used for hair growth purposes. FinPlus is marketed as having broader applications, such as improving circulation and enhancing skin and nail growth.
Thus, if you have taken FinPlus for any of these uses and were injured afterward, you may need to consult a lawyer. The lawyers at Searcy Denney have extensive experience dealing with liability for defective drug injuries. Contact us at (800) 388-3905 to learn more about your legal rights.
Is Finasteride Safe?
Finasteride is considered safe on its own when used as an oral treatment. However, it can produce specific side effects, especially for men, such as prostate cancer and sexual dysfunction.
FinPlus also contains a mix of different herbs, vitamins, and chemicals, in addition to the elevated levels of finasteride. In combination with the potential minoxidil contamination, the products may pose dangerous health and safety risks for the public. A finasteride side effects lawsuit can help you obtain compensation for losses caused by the product.
Should I File a FinPlus Lawsuit?
The injuries resulting from contaminated or defective FinPlus products can be severe and, in some cases, long-term or life-threatening. A finasteride side effects lawsuit would help hold the liable parties responsible, and would provide the victim with sufficient compensation for their injuries.
