Taxonab is an injection medication used to treat various types of cancers, including ovarian, breast, and lung cancer. It contains the active substance Paclitaxel and is manufactured by Zydus Oncosciences. Taxonab is available in the form of a 100 mg injection vial.
Taxonab is used to treat various types of cancers, including ovarian, breast, and lung cancer. It works by inhibiting the growth and spread of cancer cells, leading to an improved prognosis and overall survival.
HOW TO USE:
Taxonab should only be administered under the supervision of a healthcare professional. The injection is given intravenously (into a vein) and the dosage is determined by the individual’s weight, medical history, and response to treatment.
Taxonab should be stored in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight and moisture. Keep the medication out of the reach of children and pets.
Mechanism of action:
Taxonab works by inhibiting the assembly of microtubules, which are structures that play a key role in cell division. By preventing microtubule assembly, Taxonab inhibits the growth and spread of cancer cells, leading to an improved prognosis and overall survival.
Taxonab should be used with caution in patients with liver or kidney disease. It should also be used with caution in pregnant women and breastfeeding mothers, as the use of Taxonab may harm the fetus or infant.
Taxonab should not be used in patients with a history of severe allergic reactions to medications containing Paclitaxel. It should also be used with caution in patients with a low white blood cell count or a history of heart disease.
Taxonab may interact with other medications, such as CYP3A4 inhibitors and inducers, which affect its metabolism and efficacy. Inform your doctor about all medications you are currently taking to avoid any interactions.
Overdose of Taxonab can lead to severe side effects, including low blood pressure, breathing difficulties, and muscle weakness. Seek immediate medical attention in case of an overdose.
Common side effects of Taxonab include hair loss, nausea, vomiting, and fatigue. It may also cause a decrease in white blood cell count, leading to an increased risk of infection. However, most side effects of Taxonab are mild and resolve on their own over time. Contact your doctor immediately if you experience any severe side effects while taking Taxonab.
