Comment:
I experience no severe side effects during treatment with this medication. It has been 5 years since the end of my treatments and I have developed cardiomyopathy (a weak heart muscle) causing my ejection fraction to be around 24% (50% is normal). I will have to have an internal defibrillator device implanted to make sure my heart doesn't stop.

Comment:
After 3rd and last cycle I experienced loss of balance. Following a neuro investigation 2 years after the administration of the drug I was found to have damage of the balance centre in the brain linked to this drug. I have seen the results of a small study showing womenn over 60 treated with this drug for breast cancer are more likely to be affected by damage to the balance centre.
