Why didn’t Sanofi warn U.S. patients about the risk for permanent hair loss from Taxotere?
It is not entirely clear why Sanofi issued Taxotere hair loss warnings in many countries but not in the United States.

Instead of warning consumers, the company continued with its aggressive, and at times fraudulent, marketing tactics to boost Taxotere to global prominence.

We’re not the type of people who sue; do we really need to file a lawsuit?
If a member of your family suffered a serious injury or health problem as a result of a defective product or dangerous drug, long-term, or even life-long, medical care may be required. This could be incredibly expensive and since medical costs are continually rising may be largely unknown at the time of settlement or trial. If a member of your family died due to a defective product or dangerous drug, no amount of money can undo that wrong. It is our fervent hope that every defective products, drug or other medication lawsuit we file can serve to make the manufacturer take note of the loss and pain its product has caused. When that fails to make a company take action in the form of a product recall, greater warnings about its use and ultimately making safer products, we rely on their profit motivation to make them do the right thing. Unfortunately, in all too many cases it is only the fear of lawsuits and large settlements and verdicts that makes a company become a better corporate citizen.
