what doses are usually given for breast cancer
25 Sep 2009
The dose of docetaxel will be different for different patients. The dose that is used may depend on a number of things, including what the medicine is being used for, the patient's size, and whether or not other medicines are also being taken.
Your doctor will decide what dose you will receive.
The standard dose of Taxotere is 75 to 100mg/m2, which is based on your body size (m2).
When Taxotere is given in combination with capecitabine (another medicine used for the treatment of breast cancer) the usual dose of Taxotere is 75mg/m2.
