Taxotere is a popular chemotherapy medication that is commonly used to treat breast cancer, among other cancers. Unlike most treatments, however, Taxotere can lead to permanent hair loss.
If you have recently taken Taxotere and suffered alopecia or permanent hair loss, you may be entitled to file a Taxotere lawsuit to seek compensation for your pain and suffering.

Side Effects of Taxotere
Taxotere was originally approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in 1996 for the treatment of stomach, breast, neck, prostate and lung cancers. More frequently, this drug is used with advanced breast cancer cases after other attempts of chemotherapy have been unsuccessful.
According to the manufacturer, Sanofi-Aventis Pharmaceutical Company, Taxotere is the most prescribed medication and treatment in its class.
Recent studies, however, have linked Taxotere with permanent hair loss, or alopecia. Although chemotherapy may cause hair loss, it is typically not permanent.
A 2006 study conducted by a Denver oncologist revealed that six percent of breast cancer patients who used Taxotere suffered alopecia.
Just a few years later, a 2010 study published in the Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology also linked high numbers of Taxotere patients to alopecia.
In 2013, a study conducted by the National Cancer Research Institute found that up to 15 percent of patients who used this medication sustained permanent hair loss.
If you suffered permanent hair loss after using the cancer drug Taxotere, you may be entitled to receive compensation. Our class action lawyers can help you determine if filing a Taxotere lawsuit is right for you.

Failure to Warn About Taxotere Side Effects
Victims who are experiencing alopecia may feel the traumatic effects and emotional scars associated with irreversible hair loss. Just looking in a mirror can ignite a host of bad memories and feelings that could have been prevented.
No patient should have to suffer through this situation because the drug’s manufacturer failed in its obligation to warn doctors and patients about possible side effects.
Because of this, countless women across the country have filed Taxotere lawsuits seeking compensation for the emotional, financial and other damages they have suffered.
