Hi - I tend to spend a lot of time on the internet before I start a new chemo drug. I found quite a few women who had taken L-Glutamine to prevent the neuropathy that is so common with Taxol. I started it and am 8 treatments in ( 4 more to go ) without any symptoms of nerve problems. You need to take 30 mg / day ( which sounds like a lot, but so far it's worked ). I take 10 mg the night before chemo, and then start chemo morning with that day's 1st dose. I take 30 mg each day for the day of chemo and 2 days following. I hope this info helps !
Hugs to all,
