Chemotherapy Drug Taxotere Causes Permanent Hair Loss for Breast Cancer Survivors

Chemotherapy Drug Taxotere Causes Permanent Hair Loss for Breast Cancer Survivors

While hair loss during chemotherapy is often unavoidable, permanent hair loss after treatment should be rare.

Sadly, one of the most common breast cancer chemotherapy drugs, Taxotere, is also the only drug that causes permanent hair loss. Alternatives, like Taxol, have been just as effective, and don’t cause permanent alopecia. For over 10 years, the manufacturer of Taxotere was well aware of the side effects, but failed to warn U.S. consumers. Many women are taking action against this blatant injustice by filing for financial settlement.

Doctors prescribe Taxotere to 75% of breast cancer patients. 6-15% of those women will experience this difficult permanent side effect. If you are one of these patients, you may be entitled to financial settlement.

Taxotere Manufacturer Sanofi-Aventis Actively Kept Permanent Side Effect From Consumers

The manufacturer of Taxotere, Sanofi-Aventis, warned European consumers of permanent alopecia as early as 2005. Unfortunately, the same warning was not provided in the U.S. until the end of December of 2015. Now that the warning is public, survivors have a limited window to pursue financial settlement.

Taxotere Lawsuits & Settlement Landscape

While claims against the manufacturer of Taxotere began in 2010, they are truly heating up in 2017. Many women effectively make the case that Sanofi touted its product as superior to the alternatives despite ample evidence that Taxotere caused permanent hair loss. In response to increased pressure, Sanofi has gone public with potential side effects. This limits the available window for settlements.

If you took Taxotere and have been in remission for at least six months and still do not have your hair back, you may be eligible for financial compensation.

To be clear, very few doctors or healthcare professionals have been made aware of Taxotere’s new warning. The manufacturer chose to insert this critical information on the last page of an extremely lengthy label. There was no notification of any kind sent to healthcare professionals informing them of this crucial change.

3 Crazy Facts About Pelvic Mesh That You Should Know

Just two years ago, I had a totally different perspective on how the FDA works and the amount of testing that goes into ensuring that drugs and medical devices are safe. I trusted my doctor to give me the prescription or advice that would best address my problems because I’m not the one who went to medical school. Now don’t get me wrong: I’m not an extremist who thinks all drugs are bad and all doctors are too busy to care. (Living with chronic pain and infertility, I’ve had my share of the good and bad of the medical world.) What I do believe is that as individuals, we have to educate ourselves to ensure that we’re getting the optimal treatments possible – and part of that is weighing the risks and benefits to the medications we take and the procedures we may have. One example is that of transvaginal mesh (which is also called TVM or “pelvic mesh”). If you have TVM, if you’re considering having TVM, or if you want to learn more about the indiscrepancies of the FDA and big pharmaceutical companies, keep reading.
