Grumpy, 78 and frail, has been on 5 mg of prednisone while taking half dose of abiraterone along with full dose of darolutamide. He starts Taxotere 3/1 so the doc stopped abiraterone and darolutamide for two weeks before Taxotere.
Doc said to stay on the 5 mg of prednisone but I see the dosage sheet for Taxotere says to use 10 mg of prednisone during treatment.
Can anyone clarify this? Dosing sheet may be outdated.
He has been given a drug for nausea but Neulasta hasn’t been mentioned. Seems that Neulasta may have its own risks. Experiences or comments much appreciated.
I also have some dexamethosone on hand. Is that still recommended a few days before and after chemo?
