      Which chemo drugs are likely to be most effective depends on a lot of things including type of cancer, condition of patient, stage of cancer, etc. This site shows some of the chemo combos that are used for breast cancer. http://www.fccc.edu/cancer/types/breast/treatment/chemotherapy.html

      There are lots of variables....what does your oncologist say? When I was Dx in 2006, I was in a clinical trial and there was 3 different chemo regimines that I could have been randomly assigned to....I ended up with TAC 6 times every 3 weeks.....the others were AC x 4 then Taxol x 4 (all every 2 weeks) or AC x4 then Taxol plus Gemzar x 4....it was randomized assignment...the trial was for Node positive...don't remember if it was stage specific or not.....I was stage 3, ILC....A friend currently in Tx is getting TC x 4 every 3 weeks....she is also ILc......Talk to your oncologist and if your unsure get a second opinion....

      Nancy & Karen pretty much summed up what I would have said. Cancer treatment is much art as science. I went for a 2nd opinion after both of my breast cancer diagnoses (stage 1 invasive ductal cell, and metastasized breast cancer) not because I didn't trust my oncology team but I always feel a 2nd set of eyes and experiences can only help me find the best treatment. Both times the 2nd opinion agreed with my plan, but they had information that was helpful going forward.
