    Sheryl, I am sure there are plenty who have had mild headaches from those drugs. To be on the very safe side, be sure to mention this to your oncologist. Your mild headache could even be linked to the tension and the stress of treatment too. Take care and keep up the good fight! Sharon

    I did, Sheryl. The culprit for me was the Taxotere. Do you have any other side effects other than the headache? Rashes, that sort of thing?

      Also took tylenol and that helps with the headache for awhile. Making notes in my notebook daily for my Doc.

      Taking Tylenol and it works for little while. Thanks will be getting fluids Thursday and will take my notebook and tell them if there is something better coz sometimes it is bad then take Tylenol and just makes it better.
