You should also seek immediate medical attention if you develop fever, chills, joint pain or swelling, unusual bleeding or bruising, skin rash, itching, loss of appetite, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, dark colored urine, and/or yellowing of the skin or eyes, as these may be signs and symptoms of liver damage. Avoid excessive use of alcohol, as it may add to the effects of trabectedin on the liver. It is important to tell your doctor about all other medications you use, including vitamins and herbs.
