Not just on folfox but on all my chemos.
Drink anything and everything you can!
If you think you might like it or be able to tolerate it- try it and drink it.
All of the above drinks mentioned are good but you have to find what works for you.
I get metal mouth and major diarrhea and I just can't get water down my throat when I'm on chemo.Everything I drink is at room temperature because if it is cold it bothers my mouth and I get cold chills as it goes down.
Gatorade comes in many flavors.When I get tired of one flavor or one thing then I try another.
If you can handle cold try Popsicle's,sorbet,Italian ices,anything with no milk.Pedilite comes in Popsicle's too.
7up,flavored water,crystal light,Hi C,Capri Sun,Hansen's,Snapple,tea,popsicle's whatever you can.Try flat carbonated drinks.The dark sodas like coke have syrup in them and can cause more diarrhea.I like root beer better.Citrus is good for metal mouth but not diarrhea.
Lemon heads,hard candy and gummies help with the metal mouth.
Try watering down oj,lemonade,etc.. if it's too strong.
Tea is a diuretic which can cause diarrhea,try decaffeinated black tea but if you can drink any kind of tea it's better than ending up in the hospital.
Mexican agua's(waters) are good too and if you can't find them you can make them at home in your blender-fruit,sugar,water-watermelon,strawberry,melon etc...
Smoothies can be made with milk,soy milk or lactose free nutrition drinks and you can put your vitamins,protein and anything you want in it.
In the almost 4 years I have been on chemo I have tried just about everything even extra fluids by IV.
