Taxotere Recall Information
As of this time, the FDA has not issued a recall for Taxotere. However, the agency now requires the drug maker to include a warning that the cancer drug may cause alopecia, or permanent hair loss, on the warning label. This warning cause physicians to prescribe a different cancer medication.
If you or a loved one used Taxotere and suffered from permanent hair loss, you may be entitled to file a lawsuit to recover compensation. Settlements in Taxotere lawsuits are expected to be substantial, as they take into account your psychological harm and related expenses.

What are the Criteria for Filing a Taxotere Lawsuit?
Taxotere (docetaxel) is a chemotherapy drug approved in the treatment of breast cancer along with other forms of cancer. It is administered intravenously through a vein, and is a member of a family of drugs called taxanes.
In 2007, manufacturer Sanofi-Aventis issued a press release touting the efficacy of Taxotere based on a clinical study. However, Sanofi-Aventis failed to inform the FDA, health care providers, and the public that permanent hair loss was observed in a number of the patients taking Taxotere.
In December 2015, the FDA announced it had ordered Sanofi-Aventis to change Taxotere’s label to warn patients of the risk of permanent hair loss. While hair loss during chemotherapy is expected, patients undergoing chemotherapy with Taxotere were not warned they could potentially experience permanent hair loss.
Permanent hair loss is an extremely debilitating condition, especially for women. We are currently investigating claims for women who suffered permanent hair loss following chemotherapy with Taxotere for breast cancer.
The following criteria must be met to file a Taxotere hair loss claim:
- Diagnosed with stage 1 or 2 breast cancer
- Underwent chemotherapy as part of treatment
