Be sure to contact your doctor if you are experiencing any of the following:

Heart problems

This includes congestive heart failure or reduced heart function—with or without symptoms. Symptoms may include shortness of breath, cough, swelling of the ankles/legs, swelling of the face, palpitations, rapid weight gain, dizziness, or loss of consciousness.

Symptoms may happen within 24 hours after receiving treatment and can include fever and chills, feeling sick to your stomach (nausea), throwing up (vomiting), pain (in some cases at tumor sites), headache, dizziness, shortness of breath, low blood pressure, rash, or weakness.

Be sure to contact your doctor if you:

Are a woman who could become pregnant or may be pregnant

Have any signs of severe lung problems

Including:

  • Severe shortness of breath
  • Fluid in or around the lungs
  • Weakening of the valve between the heart and the lungs
