Is it harmful?

Paclitaxel(paclitero or intaxel)+trastuzumab(hertraz) cycles are going on.The doctors protocol is 120mg of paclitaxel and trastuzumab 100mg. I used to take 260mg (INTAXEL multi dose vials) and 1hertraz(440mg) vial for every 3 cycles.after every cycle i store them in my fridge. For first 6 cycles I took INTAXEL multi dose vials and hertraz vial and stored.but for 7th and 8th cycle I took 2 PACLITERO 260mg(single dose vials)and I'm storing them in the fridge.i didnt recognise that it was single dose i noticed it.........

1. i used 1 single dose vial for 2 (7th and 8 cycles)cycles is it harmful.

2.what is the exact difference between single dose and muti dose vials

Sir Sumeet and Rohit help me.

Please check with your doctor! Believe me, you won't be the first person who has made a mistake in dosing, but it is important that the doctor who knows your case knows exactly what you took so that adjustments can be made if needed.
