Headache on carboplatin

As many of you know I'm on that journey again with Carboplatin. Just wondered if headaches are ok... had one last ight ut eventually went with paracetamol. And again when I woke but passed when I got up and did my ususal bits. but it's back is it ok just to keep taking paracetamol to get rid of it I'm sure it's nothing to be worried about Feel fine otherwise no sickness temperature double vision etc. x

  • I would mention it to your onc or cns.... I had increased headaches but my onc wasn't really bothered .... gave a flippent remark saying it is highly unlikely you have Brain cancer ... well I Didn't think I had but thanks for that!!! I would try to keep hydrated and drink lots of water 🤗

  • I had Carbo a week ago. I've had the odd little headache at night. Had one last night. I wouldn't worry. Xxxx

  • I've had a few headaches on carbo especially a day or to after infusion

    Drink plenty of water and I've took the odd couple of paracetamol .

  • Yes, I had headaches on Carbo. I took a couple of paracetamol and found that did the trick. After a couple of treatments, the headaches stopped. Hope this happens for you too.
