In brief: Heart failure

About 4% of women treated with Herceptin (trastuzumab) develop some weakness in their heart.
This decrease in heart function is almost always reversible when the drug is stopped. Other side effects of Herceptin (trastuzumab) can include allergic reaction, fatigue, headache and diarrhea. Most of my patients have no side effects!
