Those who were battling cancer, or are currently battling cancer have hired a Taxotere Lawsuit Lawyer, and have filed lawsuits against makers of the drug. Consumers accuse the maker of hiding information about some of the potentially dangerous side effects, including alopecia.
Our team’s position is this:
- Taxotere is a defective and dangerous drug
- The pharmaceutical company that makes Taxotere did not properly test this drug
- Patients taking Taxotere were not warned of the higher risk of developing alopecia and other side effects (see below)
- Taxotere’s safety was misrepresented in advertisements and marketing
Taxotere is a cancer medication that is intended to slow the growth of cancer cells, and prevent them from spreading. Taxotere is typically used to treat breast cancer, prostate cancer, lung cancer, and other types of cancers.
When patients are undergoing chemotherapy, hair loss is a common — but temporary — side effect. In most cases, a cancer patient will begin regrowing hair within months after completing their treatment. However, those who had taken Taxotere may suffer from permanent hair loss – and this condition may be irreversible.
Taxotere Side Effects & Injuries
Permanent hair loss is the most common side effect mentioned in a Taxotere Lawsuit. Known as alopecia, this condition can affect:
- Head Hair
- Pubic Hair
- Beard and Mustache Hair
In many cases, this type of permanent hair loss is disfiguring. Our experts suggest that when patients suffer the loss of head or facial hair (including eyebrows), their quality of life can be negatively affected.
