Chemo tablets

Hi everyone

I am on chemo tablets just going into cycle 4 if 6. I am on 10 tablets 500mg per day for 14 days then a week off.

I have some side effects that I am having difficulty with and wondered if any other person is on chemo tablets how they deal with their side effects they might have

I get dry mouth all the time even when I have a week off - have tried sugar free gum and sucking fruit sweets - nothing helps

Everything seems salty from water to tea etc. 

Chemo brain - always angry and bad moods

Any suggestions that you have would be gratefully received

Thank you 

  • Hi  

    I had TNBC but had chemo via an intravenous drip rather than in tablet form.

    I noticed that your post hadn't had any replies yet so hope you don't mind me suggesting that you also post it in the main breast cancer group.

    I do hope these side effects become more manageable.

  • Thank you for your reply.

    The chemo tablets are a prevention cycle, I had intravenous chemo for 6 month before my operation in April

    Just wondered if anyone was on the same and experiencing the same side effects.

    I will put a message in the main cancer group page.
