Switching chemo regimens?

Question from KySandy: I just had one session of FAC 100. Now I see studies indicating a much better response to TAC. Once you begin a therapy, is it ever switched?
Answers - Jennifer Griggs Your question is a good one and you have seen first-hand how quickly breast cancer care changes. FAC certainly is one of the "tried-and-true" recipes. There is one study that has suggested that a Taxotere-containing regimen may provide a benefit in some women.

It would be worth talking to your doctor about whether receiving a taxane after your FAC would give you additional benefit. It is so hard to know how to interpret the results of a study for your individual case. This may be another situation where a second opinion might help.
