Hi all. My mum is about to start 6 sessions of chemotherapy. She's on 3 drugs; taxotere, cyclophosphamide and zometa. The latter two don't sound too bad in their side effects but I'm a little concerned about taxotere. Are they likely to be severe? Does anyone have any advice about the best way to mitigate their effects? There's nothing more advanced she should be taking instead is there? Thanks. Answered by Paulene Fedorchak 6 months ago.
I was on Taxotere/Carboplatin/Herceptin. I think the Taxotere was the one that can cause quite a bit of naseau. I would say talk with the oncologist. Mine made sure I had as much anti-naseau medication as I needed. Answered by Latisha Stockley 6 months ago.
I was on Taxol for 12 weeks (once/week), which is very similar to Taxotere. Actually is was a piece of cake compared to Cytoxan/Adriamycin (Cytoxan = cyclophosphamide). Cytoxan can cause severe nausea, lower GI problems, mouth sores, loss of appetite, hair loss, neutropenia, and a host of other problems. Taxol's most common side effects are hair loss, anemia, constipation, and peripheral neuropathy. Other than losing the rest of my hair, the only effects from Taxol that I had were some fluid retention and muscle soreness. Answered by Earlie Scannapieco 6 months ago.
My father was on taxotere and zometa for his metastatic prostate cancer that had spread to his bones. The side effects were pretty minimal. His hair did fall out some and he had a little nausea, but no vomiting. He also did get some sores in his mouth, but not so bad that he couldn't eat. The doctor prescribed a mouthwash that helped with the sores in his mouth. Answered by Kitty Gidwani 6 months ago.
for me i had cyclophosphamide,adriamycin, and taxotere. they list all these drugs as almost, having the same side effects. i had most of all the common side effects. be sure to tell you mother if she has any problems to be sure to let her oncologist know immediately. i have nerve damage to my feet. they decreased my dosage of taxotere but the nerve damage had all ready started. its been 2 years since my treatments and I'm on neurotien to block the pain. they say it will get better but it hasn't yet. my prayers go out to you and your mom.

I have taken carboplatin and taxol which is a bit different to your brother in law. But I can say what I was on made me feel fairly sick. They do have some good anti nausea tablets, also make sure he rests a lot. I wish him well. Answered by Victor Menhennett 6 months ago.

Why do we use prednisone in prostate cancer?
why do we combine prednisone with docetaxel etc... in some patients with prostate cancer. Also can you include the mechanism of action... I understand studywise why but I want to understand how... Thanks!

Prednisone Mechanism Of Action Answered by Timothy Presutti 6 months ago.
They help control many different functions in our bodies such as the way in which we use fats, proteins and carbohydrates. They regulate our immune system and the balance of salt and water in our bodies. They also help reduce inflammation. Steroids can be used as part of your treatment to help destroy cancer cells and make chemotherapy| more effective. Steroids for instance play a major role in killing off blast cells in blood cancers. They can also be used to help reduce an allergic reaction to certain chemotherapy drugs, given in low doses as anti-sickness drugs| or taken to improve appetite. In these situations, steroids are usually given only for short periods of time, and the side effects described here will not usually occur. Steroids are administered in most chemo protocols if not all protocols. Answered by Vernia Jerrett 6 months ago.
To reduce fluid retention caused by the Docetaxel. Prednisone causes the body to excrete potassium, which influences fluid levels. It can also be used to increase platelets because it suppresses the immune system. Answered by Calvin Domenico 6 months ago.

Asked by Nicky Siegrist 6 months ago.
Docetaxel Cyclophosphamide Doxorubicin My mom had breast cancer now shes in remission. Her right arm sometimes tingle and her right leg. Sometimes her hand goes numb to the point she cnt pick anything up. She was checked for carpal tunnel and things but her test results are normal. Could it just be because the chemo is leaving her body and the cancer is gone. I just want to know what are the side effects for no longer taking the meds and being done with chemo other then being tired. Answered by Raleigh Schanzenbach 6 months ago.

Is there a relation between crying eyes and excessive salivation in a pat with chemo for prostate ca?
If there is how to control it?
Asked by Delbert Shimer 6 months ago.
Docetaxel (Taxotere) is a chemo commonly used in advanced prostate cancer. It can cause tear duct obstruction which can lead to excessive tearing. It can be treated with tiny stents. It is not terribly common. An eye doc can evaluate. The excessive salivation is a bit more peculiar... might be related to another medication perhaps Blessings Answered by Bari Sturgul 6 months ago.
