Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER and thank you for your question.

Side effects of a chemotherapy drug correlate to the specific drug. Prior to the start of treatment, the oncologist will review all possible side effects.

In my personal experience I received 5 different drugs to treat 2 different cancers, a combination of 3 drugs for brain cancer and a combination of 2 drugs for breast cancer.

Fatigue and hair loss were associated with each treatment "cocktail". If properly medicated before chemotherapy infusion, nausea and vomiting are avoided.
