    Posted: Jan 23 2019 at 1:20pm
I've had 5 doses of Taxol so far and am scheduled to get 7 more. Two weeks into Taxol, I ended up with severe runny nose and three weeks into Taxol I developed dry cough. It flares up when I am up and about and especially when I am talking or moving around. It dies down at night and when I am sedentary. Anyone else experienced this while on Taxol? I meet with my oncologist on Monday and will discuss this with him too. 
I've read on BC forums that Taxol does has negative effects on lungs similar to radiation. This is freaking me out Ouch

I just finished Taxol and Carbo two weeks ago. The runny nose and watery eyes were a big part of my side effects. I also seemed to have a daily bloody nose to some extent. They seem to finally be slowing down a bit.

I had a cough that seemed to stem more from a dry mouth/throat. 

It definitely doesn't hurt to talk with your oncologist. Never forget that YOU are your own best advocate. Always, always speak up.
IDC, 3.1 cm, Stage IIb, ACx4 (finished 9/6/18), Carbo/Taxol weekly for 12 weeks (finished 1/10/19), surgery to follow, and then radiation

Hi,
I also had had the runny nose but not runny eyes. My cough was more due to the "tickle" or scratchy feeling in my throat. A while after finishing Taxol these troublesome things went away. But certainly talk to your oncologist about it.
