Depending on the specific type of cancer being treated, it is either used alone or in combination with other drugs. Taxol, which is available in brand-name and generic forms, is given through an IV over a one-hour period. While most people tolerate this prescription medicine well, potential side effects include hair loss, unusual sensations, anemia, and leukopenia.
