Side effects of targeted therapy

You may have side effects that are caused by the targeted therapy rather than by the chemotherapy. Side effects depend on the medication used. Some typical effects are fevers, allergic reactions, rashes, diarrhoea and blood pressure changes.

Rarely, some targeted therapies may cause life-threatening side effects. Your doctor will discuss this with you.
