Herceptin and swollen lip


Re: Herceptin and swollen lip

Thank you for your reply. I spoke to the nurse in the chemo unit and she felt it is most likely related to the Ramipril. Made an appointment to speak to GP. 
I realise my question was quite specific and hopefully not applicable to many people.

Herceptin and swollen lip

I’m on IV Herceptin on a maintenance basis. On and off for the past 9 years. 
The last two months a few days before my treatment is due I’ve had a swollen lip. I also had it earlier in the year but didn’t take note of it. 
it’s not a cold sore. Looks a bit like a fluid filled blister! 
The last one only lasted 12-15 hours. 
Anyone else experienced this?

It could also be Ramipril my blood pressure medication. I don’t take anything else. Swollen lips are mentioned as a side effect.

I'm at the Hospital on Wednesday so will mention it then. 
Thank you.
