General Docetaxel Dosing InformationSome considerations for people taking docetaxel include the following:
- Docetaxel is given intravenously (by IV).
- Most people receive their docetaxel injection at their healthcare provider's office, a hospital, or at an "infusion center."
- For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Docetaxel will not work as well if you stop taking it before your healthcare provider recommends.
- If you are unsure about anything related to docetaxel or your docetaxel dosage, talk to your doctor, nurse, or pharmacist.
