People who take too much Taxol may have overdose symptoms that could include:
- Bone marrow depression (a decreased ability of the bone marrow to produce blood cells)
- Unusual sensations, such as burning or tingling
- Mouth sores or sores in the gastrointestinal tract.
It is unlikely for a person to overdose on the drug, however, as it given by a healthcare provider.
If you do not take your Taxol as scheduled, talk to your healthcare provider as soon as possible to set up your next infusion appointment.
Currently, both brand-name and generic versions of Taxol are licensed for sale (see Generic Taxol).
