Taxotere And Permanent Baldness In Breast Cancer Patients

Taxotere is a popular chemotherapy drug primarily used to treat breast cancer. It is also used to fight certain other forms of cancer.

One of the reasons Taxotere is so popular is because patients are typically administered the drug only once every three weeks. With other chemotherapy drugs, treatment is usually once a week.

Unfortunately, it seems this convenience may come at a heavy price. Taxotere has been linked to permanent hair loss (alopecia), especially in women who have used the drug for breast cancer treatment. The manufacturer of the drug, Sanofi, did not warn consumers of this side effect, claiming that hair would grow back after chemotherapy ended.

At HDSMJ, we represent women who are dealing with permanent hair loss due to Taxotere. We work to hold pharmaceutical companies responsible for their negligence and to help clients make a full financial recovery.

The Psychological Effects Of Permanent Hair Loss

Most patients come to terms with the fact that they will lose their hair for a period of time after chemotherapy is administered. But with many chemotherapy drugs, hair loss is only temporary. With Taxotere, many women have experienced permanent hair loss. They can also experience hair loss in other areas including eyebrows, eyelashes, armpit and pubic hair.

Permanent hair loss is not only disfiguring, but can also be emotionally devastating to those affected.

Many women experience depression and low self-esteem as the result of their hair loss. This is in addition to the distress and grief of a cancer diagnosis and subsequent treatment.
