I just spent the last four days in the hospital with a neutropenic fever and low potassium.  Taxotere is making all of my counts bottom out.  My ANC was .03!!  I received two broad spectrum antibotics, two doses (on IV and one oral) of potassium, and two Neupogen shots (after much debate) while in the hopsital.   A test today shows that my ANC has come up to 1.5 as of today.  

Anyone else on Taxatore? What has your I was switched to it from Taxol as I kept having rashes from the Taxol.  I do all of my chemo in patient as part of a desensitization protocol.
