Nearly the same as Taxotere. My reactions are really quite modest. Have had 4 cycles of Cabazitaxel and have had good drops in PSA so far. Only issue I'm dealing with is lowered red blood cells and hemoglobin so I'm going to have a transfusion in the near future, maybe as early as next Thursday. Depends on the blood tests. While on Cabazitaxel, they give me a few extra pre meds and a Neulasta shot the day after chemo. I have had a reaction to the Neulasta shot that starts about 24 hours after the shot and lasts about 36 hours. Joint pain, achy back and stuff Tylenol and pain meds help and I try to get a little extra sleep - it goes away pretty quick.
Keep it positive and smile :)
