    Are you on Adriamyicin/Cytoxin for your first rounds? And Taxol for your next? If that's the case....my rounds of Taxol were quite a bit easier on me. I was tired but had less nausea than before. I had some changes with my nails (flattened out) as well.

    I don't know, I will ask my doctor. I know I am taking: herceptin, cerbotec, onicit among others. Btw, smoking marijuana could help cure cancer?

      You're welcome. No....marijuana isn't a cure for cancer but I have heard it does help significantly for pain in advanced cancer cases.

    Hi Chelita, I also had to have adrymycin and cytoxin for the first round a total of four every two weeks. I was also given a booster called nuelasta the day after treatments to help with my white cell count. Then taxol which i have 8 weeks left the taxol is less aggressive treatments for me the nausea was horrible for the first four and very tired not wanting to eat much. Then there was taxol this medication only gives me aches bones and some sleepiness but this is much more managable. Best of luck to you!
