What's the difference between taxol and taxotere?
These are two chemotherapy drugs. Are they related at all? I have a friend who has ovarian cancer and she had an allergic reaction to taxol. Can she have the taxotere? Asked by Vanna Smithhart 1 year ago.

Taxotere is an alternative to Taxol. It was developed because so many women were having reactions to Taxol. Taxotere has the same active agent, but it is suspended in a synthetic base. People can still have reactions to Taxotere, but they are generally less severe. There is another form called Abraxane, same basic active agent, different formulation for the base. Answered by Alice Linnert 1 year ago.

Taxotere isn't licenced in ovarian, and as the other poster said, is a variant of taxol - they're both taxane based (they're derived from Yew trees.) She needs to ask her oncologist what new trials are available for ovarian and get one of the newer agents. Answered by Chantelle Danoff 1 year ago.

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 Blake Quittner 1 year 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 Shenita Gundert 1 year 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 Leighann Lininger 1 year 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 Debrah Lierz 1 year 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. God bless! Answered by Linnea Deglopper 1 year ago.


What are the long term effects from taking platinol,taxotere for treatment of lung cancer?
my father is taking platinol and taxotere for his cancer he has had raidation and kemo for the past seven months and was woundering if there is any long term effects from these drugs. and if so how long will they last. Asked by Daryl Ketteringham 1 year ago.

I had chemo last fall, one of which was taxotere. Some people have no side effects. I did have some damage to the nerve endings in my extremities (hands and feet), but I'll tell ya... I'd rather have those side effects than not have survived the cancer! Its all a balancing act. Which would you rather deal with... the cancer, or the side effects? I chose the side effects. There are some good sites on the web, like the Mayo Clinic, etc. Answered by Agustin Merancio 1 year ago.

Well, Cisplatin can cause hearing loss and kidney damage if you take it for a long time. Taxotere can cause neuropathy which is generally mostly reversible, but can persist if you do not stop the drug after symptoms start. If you father has lung cancer, the benefits probably outweigh any long term risks. Answered by Man Righthouse 1 year ago.

Asked by Cristy Vaile 1 year ago.

Tell your boy friend that he needs to do his research and discover on his own the prognosis for using that abusive chemotherapy. Don't just listen to doctors that tell you it's the way to deal with this problem. Doctors do NOT have the answers to "curing" this. You need to get to the "root cause" of what is causing this cancer, if you don't, he will get the booby prize at the end and welcome death. 99% of ALL cancers come from infection(s) in the body. If you can find a practitioner in your area where you live that knows how to do QRA testing, you can find the "root cause" and deal with the cancer in the best way. They can work with your doctor to actually help your boyfriend, not abuse him with chemotherapy. Did you know that only 2.1% of the people getting chemotherapy live longer than 5 years!? good luck to you Answered by Maria Colletti 1 year ago.

So for the people who think of that we are "no longer something" any Black man or woman with their very very own practice, money, political place of work, enterprise or at a school..or in line with probability receiving some govenment reward that rather all of us with a definite income point (or lack thereof) is eligible for, this means that we are being given "particular scientific care". understand that the Black people who did income from Affirmative action classes stopped rather doing so after approximately 1982.

What's the difference between taxol and taxotere?
These are two chemotherapy drugs. Are they related at all? I have a friend who has ovarian cancer and she had an allergic reaction to taxol. Can she have the taxotere? Asked by Adella Sekerak 1 year ago.

Taxotere is an alternative to Taxol. It was developed because so many women were having reactions to Taxol. Taxotere has the same active agent, but it is suspended in a synthetic base.

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).
