My doc may be switching me Taxotere (don't know if I spelled ir correctly) instead of Taxol. Won't know for sure until I see him. It's my understanding (from his assistant), the because Taxol is primarily natural, people sometimes have allergic reactions to the preservatives in it. But Taxotere is the synthetic version and supposedly works just as well. Any experience with this that you can share would be appreciated.
