It is important that you ask your doctor questions, not ChemoExperts! Cancer treatment drugs can be dangerous and ChemoExperts cannot predict negative outcomes. The information on the ChemoExperts.com website (hereinafter the “Website”) is not intended to act as a substitute for the medical advice of a physician. The Website creates no warranty or guarantee of any kind. The Website in no way creates any healthcare provider-patient relationship. The only relationship that exists is between you and your healthcare provider. ChemoExperts will not answer any clinical questions pertaining to an individual, nor is under any obligation to answer any question. Again, all questions should be addressed by your healthcare provider.
If you have any symptoms after chemotherapy, call 911 or go to an Emergency Department.
When in doubt, go to an Emergency Department or call your doctor.
ChemoExperts does our best to provide the highest quality, current information, because we understand that this may be a very emotional time and we too have had family and friends with cancer. This is why all information is available free of charge and without the need to sign up or log in. The material provided by ChemoExperts is NOT all-inclusive and is for informational (educational) purposes only. It is designed to help you make more informed decisions about your healthcare and ask more detailed questions of your healthcare provider(s). We are not trying to diagnose or select your treatment option, this can only be done by your physician.
It is important to note that not all information about any given medication contained on the Website is provided. Instead, ChemoExperts presents you with what it thinks is the most important and relevant medication information that will help you. This is the information that many employees of ChemoExperts would like to see as if they were receiving these treatments themselves. ChemoExperts strongly believes in providing the ability to access additional information about each medication, and have provided weblinks to manufacturers’ package inserts and published clinical trials (may include either industry sponsored or investigator-initiated) to make it easy to do so. To access manufacturer package inserts, look at the bottom bullet point on each individual medication in the gray boxes for this prompt: "See DailyMed package insert.” Clinical study links can be found by clicking on the word "Clinical Studies" in the Side Effects section of each treatment web page or at the bottom of each treatment web page. ChemoExperts makes no representation or warranty about the scientific merit, nor the author’s conclusions regarding any statement of safety or efficacy of any particular clinical study referenced, or found via provided links. ChemoExperts has provided links to clinical studies that usually do NOT require payment to view.
Your safety is your doctor's utmost concern. Because of this, it is important to realize that the exact chemotherapy regimen you are receiving, or may receive, could differ slightly from what is shown on the Website or is reported in different clinical trials. Chemotherapy regimens are changed by doctors to best fit each patient. Holding doses, changing doses, or changing the day a drug is given is common for cancer doctors (oncologists). The goal of therapy is to provide benefits that outweigh the risks, but despite your doctor’s best intentions, harm may come from the use of chemotherapy or supportive care medications. Regardless of whether chemotherapy is an intravenous infusion or an oral pill, it is up to you and your doctor to discuss the risks and benefits of all chemotherapy and supportive care medications and come up with a treatment plan that you are comfortable with.
The information provided is intended to help you make more informed decisions about your healthcare situation and encourage better communication between you, your doctors, pharmacists, nurses, and all members of your healthcare team.
