Re: Herceptin + Perjeta - what side effects have you encountered?

Have you seen this website about Perjeta?

Perjeta and Herceptin together causes stomatitis (mouth soreness) is 4.6% and the same percent for a bad taste. Not sure about the loss of smell, but Herceptin affects your nose - it makes my nasal mucosa ulcerate and bleed. Others seem to just get a runny nose. Decreases sense of smell could be due to either I suspect.

Hope it mproves
