When unsafe drugs cause complications

You may have learned about certain drugs being recalled by the FDA, or you may have experienced a medical injury from a drug that is still on the market. If you’ve been harmed by a drug prescribed by a healthcare provider even after you followed the intended usage, you could be eligible for financial compensation for your drug-related injury or drug recall.

Taxotere®

Similar circumstances surround Taxotere® lawsuits which claim the manufacturer of Taxotere (Sanofi-Aventis) failed to warn patients and physicians of the increased risks of permanent alopecia (loss of hair). Taxotere® is a chemotherapy drug prescribed primarily for the treatment of breast cancer. One of the side effects faced by patients treated with Taxotere® is permanent hair loss, a serious medication error that patients were never warned about. Sanofi-Aventis manufactured Taxotere®, an anti-cancer chemotherapy drug approved to treat breast cancer by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration in 1996. Recent studies have shown that approximately 9% of breast cancer patients who were prescribed and took Taxotere suffered from alopecia that lasted up to a decade or longer.

Other common side effects of Taxotere are listed as follows:

  • Permanent hair loss
  • Infection
  • Anemia
  • Burning, numbness or tingling sensation
  • Diarrhea
  • Fever
  • Myalgia
  • Nausea
  • Skin rashes
  • Weight gain
  • Tiredness or weakness
  • Thinning of the nails
  • Pain in the arms, hands, legs or feet
  • Bodily swelling
