Taxotere, generically distributed as docetaxel, is a prescription cancer medication which obstructs the growth and spread of cancer cells in your body. Like most cancer drugs, Taxotere is rife with side effects, from respiratory issues to vision loss. But it has proven effective in cases of cancer including breast cancer, lung cancer, prostate cancer, stomach cancer, lung cancer, and head/neck cancer.
In most cases of chemotherapy, hair loss (alopecia) to some degree or other is unavoidable. Permanent hair loss due to Taxotere, however, should not be an indignity anyone has to suffer. There is an investigation currently underway regarding Taxotere and its lack of warning to patients regarding the possibility of permanent hair loss. The FDA issued a statement in December of 2015 that cases of permanent hair loss have been reported due to Taxotere. Unfortunately, Taxotere’s manufacturer, Sanofi, has failed to adequately represent the severity of its drug’s side effects.
