I'm not sure what you mean...do you mean you've had Herceptin 3 different times, or that in one treatment, you got 3x the dosage?
I am on Herceptin every 3 weeks, but have noticed no side effects.
Side effects from a triple dose of Herceptin
Has anyone else had extreme fatigue with this
Hello Louie, I too am a little confused by your triple dose of Herceptin. I received weekly doses of Herceptin for six months along with chemo and now am down to a dose every three weeks. I do feel tired and achy like the flu after treatment. Nothing that a tylenol cann't help me with. Hope you feel better soon!!!!!
In the beginning I was getting a Herceptin weekly and then it was changed to one treatment 3x the dose once every three weeks. With the weekly dose I was fatigued for three days but able to take care of myself. With the 3x dose I was down flat unable to reach for the water that was handed to me.
Louie, think you answered your question. I get the triple dose as well and from the start of chemo the one thing I always kept in mind was to drink lots and lots and lots of water to flush all that stuff out. I am fatigued, and I have body aches - not anything like they were during chemo and rad. treatment; I just keep drinking water and started Aleve 2x a day.
