AC is a combination of two chemotherapy drugs.
It takes its name from the initials of these drugs:
- doxorubicin (also known as Adriamycin)
Before you start your treatment, many hospitals will arrange a chemotherapy information session. At this appointment a nurse will discuss how and when your chemotherapy will be given and how side effects can be managed.
Contact numbers will also be given so you know who to phone if you have any questions or concerns.
