Dry cough during Taxol

AAAA Member Posts: 19
Hi Ladies,
has anyone developed dry cough and mucuos in nose during Taxol? After two days of my 1st Taxol I started to have mucuos in nose and throat and then after a week I started to have dry cough. Its been 17 days now and I still have dry cough. Just wondering if this is a Taxol side effect. Thank you in advance.

    Hi @AA ; . I had a cough on Taxol and Herceptin along with the bloody nose. I still get both as I'm still having Herceptin, and it even changes my voice to a croaky one for about a week after treatment. Are you on Herceptin as well?

    Thanks for your reply @poodlejules, im not on herceptin. Is your cough dry as well?

    @AA, taxol really dries our mucous membranes in our body. A lot of us ladies had bloody noses from being dry and sometimes a dry cough. Also losing your nose hairs doesn't help either.

    Do mention it to oncologist as taxol sometimes causes lung issues. I don't remember the cough but had a constant nasal drip. Watery eyes and spontaneous blood noses and blocked nose. Saline spray assisted with this. Kath x
