Taxotere brand is manufactured by Sanofi-Aventis. The generic, docetaxel, has been available for several years. I had not heard that the generic was inferior to the brand-name drug.
PERHAPS the reason is that certain facilities in India that make generics have serious manufacturing problems. The FDA has found issues and has issued warnings. May even have stopped production of certain generics that are imported into the USA.
I don't know in which facility (generic) docetaxel is made and whether the quality is the issue that the doctors have hinted at.
