Taxotere® Lawsuit

Chemotherapy Drug Linked to Permanent Hair Loss

What Is Taxotere ®?

Taxotere Side Effects LawsuitTaxotere ® (docetaxel) is a chemotherapy drug used to treat breast cancer, non-small cell lung cancer, metastatic prostate cancer, head and neck cancer, and advanced stomach cancer.  Taxotere ® is administered intravenously, and belongs to a family of drugs called taxanes. Taxotere ® (docetaxel) is used to try to prevent cancer cells from growing and dividing.

Taxotere ® Side Effects

Lawsuits on behalf of breast cancer survivors are now being filed against the drug's manufacturer, Sanofi-Aventis, for failure to warn medical professionals and patients of the potential risk of permanent baldness (alopecia).  The Taxotere ® lawsuits state that if Sanofi-Aventis had properly warned of the risks, patients would likely have been prescribed a different chemotherapy which would not result in permanent hair loss.

Other potential side effects include:

     
  • Bone, muscle or joint pain
  •  
  • Constipation or Diarrhea
  •  
  • Fatigue and weakness
  •  
  • Fluid retention with weight gain, swelling of the ankles or abdominal area
  •  
  • Infection
  •  
  • Low red blood cell count (anemia)
  •  
  • Low white blood cell count
  •  
  • Mouth or throat sores
  •  
  • Nail changes (color changes to your fingernails or toenails)
  •  
  • Nausea
  •  
  • Peripheral neuropathy (numbness in your fingers and toes)
