Taxotere Pleural Effusion Causes and Reviews


Your pleura is a large, thin sheet of tissue that wraps around the outside of your lungs and lines the inside of your chest cavity. Between the layers of the pleura is a very thin space. Normally it's filled with a small amount of fluid. The fluid helps the two layers of the pleura glide smoothly past each other as your lungs breathe air in and out.

Disorders of the pleura include

  • Pleurisy - inflammation of the pleura that causes sharp pain with breathing
  • Pleural effusion - excess fluid in the pleural space
  • Pneumothorax - buildup of air or gas in the pleural space
  • Hemothorax - buildup of blood in the pleural space

Many different conditions can cause pleural problems. Viral infection is the most common cause of pleurisy. The most common cause of pleural effusion is congestive heart failure. Lung diseases, like COPD, tuberculosis, and acute lung injury, cause pneumothorax. Injury to the chest is the most common cause of hemothorax. Treatment focuses on removing fluid, air, or blood from the pleural space, relieving symptoms, and treating the underlying condition.

Taxotere Pleural Effusion Reviews

Mon, 04 Oct 2010

Wrote earlier report while experiencing vertigo episode; thus my post a bit bolloxed up. The trial I'm on mixes Taxotere and lenalidomide, a powerful derivative of thalidomide, for advanced prostate cancer. (Trial does NOT include Lamictal; I take that concurrently for epilepsy.) Lenalidomide is supposed to give Taxotere a boost. We'll see. Trial also includes prednisone twice a day, morn and night. I'm beginning to think mix of prednisone and Lamilctal is the culprit; episode occurs only in morning, after I take both pills. Second prednisone comes just before bed, along with Lamictal, so if I'm experiencing vertigo what's to worry? Don't know if that happens. Will check it out this eve. Sorry for long post; I'm just working this out in my mind. Such as it is.
