How To Use
  • APPEARANCE: Injectable. Medicines used to treat cancer are very strong and can have many side effects.
  • Before receiving this medicine, make sure you understand all the risks and benefits.
  • It is important for you to work closely with your doctor during your treatment. Your doctor will prescribe your exact dose and tell you how often it should be given.
  • This medicine is given through a needle placed in one of your veins. You will receive this medicine while you are in a hospital or cancer treatment center.
  • A nurse or other trained health professional will give you this medicine. You will be given other medicines before you are given paclitaxel.
  • These other medicines may help prevent some side effects of paclitaxel. Do not let any of this medicine get on your skin or in your mouth, nose, or eyes.
  • If any medicine does get on these areas, tell your caregiver right away. Your health caregiver may check your blood pressure, heart rate, and other vital signs while you are receiving this medicine.

Side Effects
  • Call your doctor right away if you notice any of these side effects: Allergic reaction: Itching or hives, swelling in your face or hands, swelling or tingling in your mouth or throat, chest tightness, trouble breathing. Fast, slow, or uneven heartbeat.
