Like any other medication, carboplatin may cause side-effects. Most patients experience either vomiting or nausea after a carboplatin injection, but these symptoms usually disappear within 24 hours. Your doctor may give you an anti-emetic to stop you from being sick.
Carboplatin can make you more likely to be prone to infections. If you think you have an infection, a sore throat, mouth ulcers, fever, chills or achiness during treatment you should tell your doctor immediately. Less commonly, carboplatin causes loss of appetite, a tendency to bleed or bruise easily, anaemia, kidney problems, rash, itchiness, reddening and blistering of the skin, high frequency hearing loss or ringing in the ears, numbness and pins and needles, liver problems, fever, chills, weakness, hair loss and altered taste.
Certain other unwanted side effects can only be detected by your doctor by testing your blood, liver and kidney function. Very rarely, severe allergic reactions to carboplatin may occur, with difficulty breathing, swelling of the face, lips and eyes, rash, rapid pulse and profuse sweating.
