Anyone allergic to paclitaxel (Taxol)?
Has anybody experienced a severe reaction to taxol? Yesterday my husband was getting his first chemo treatment of carboplatin and taxol. Within minutes of starting the infusion of taxol he became very flushed, felt nauseous and his blood pressure spiked to 245/115. The nurse immediately stopped the infusion. They gave him a high dose of bennadryl which stopped the allergic reaction. Any suggestions as far as an alternative treatment? We meet with his oncologist on Friday.
