Cabazitaxel Drug Information

If you have prostate cancer, your healthcare provider may prescribe cabazitaxel (Jevtana®). This prescription drug is specifically designed for men who have prostate cancer that has not adequately responded to certain other chemotherapy treatments.
 
Cabazitaxel is administered intravenously (through an IV) and is given once every three weeks. Anemia and low levels of certain white blood cells are some of the possible side effects of this drug.
 
It's important to review cabazitaxel's safety information with your healthcare provider before starting treatment. This drug may not be suitable for everyone, so make sure your healthcare provider knows if you have any other medical conditions, such as kidney disease, liver disease, or low blood counts, or if you are taking any other types of medicine, including herbal supplements.
