This is Dr. David
I am a cancer doctor.
usually before the chemotherapy paclitaxel is given, IV high doses of steroids and dexamethasone is given in the vein infusion to decrease nausea and to boost the body's bone marrow.
it is much more likely the steroids are causing increased anxiety and nervousness, rather than the paclitaxel chemotherapy.
increased anxiety would not be a typical sign of allergy or side effect from paclitaxel.
ask your doctors if high doses of steroids like dexamethasone are being given before the paclitaxel
if that is what is causing the anxiety, you might need anti-anxiety medications before these infusions
