I know there is currently a shortage of Doxil (USA) Caelyx (UK) so when my oncologist prescribed Caelyx for me last week (How can he not know it had been discontinued - doh) his team managed to substitute it for a different Chemo - Doxorubicin.
I was told that it is similar to Doxil/Caelyx but doesn't have the coating on it that protects the heart and prevents hair loss.
So I was wondering if anyone out there had had this chemo and if so DID IT WORK? Its only been about 8 weeks since I finished Topotecan and I am feeling quite weary and nauseated on this drug.
Any imput will be greatly received. Love Tina xxxx
