Taxotere and Hair Loss
Many women who have suffered from being diagnosed and treated for breast cancer but many women who took Taxotere suffered more than they should have to. People who undergo chemotherapy are told to expect hair loss and that radiation treatments usually cause hair loss in the area that is being treated- but these people are also told that their hair will grow back.
Unfortunately, many women who opted to use Taxotere in their fight against cancer were not warned that it may cause permanent hair loss (alopecia). If the manufacturer of Taxotere, Sanofi, had provided accurate warning labels on their product, these women and their doctors would likely have chosen a different, equally effective medication that does not have the harmful side effect of permanent hair loss.

Taxotere’s manufacturer, Sanofi, knew that their product could cause permanent hair loss but they chose not to warn U.S. consumers. Sanofi included alopecia warnings on the Taxotere they sold to Canadian and European markets but did not include these warnings with the Taxotere sold in the U.S. until 2015.
Sanofi and other parties that knew about the potential harm that Taxotere could cause should be held accountable for their wrongdoings.
