Just found out they are switching me from Herceptin to some other similar drug called Kanjiniti. Does anyone take this or have experience with it? I'm feeling uneasy about the switch given Herceptin worked so well. Thanks!

My insurance wouldn't pay for the Herceptin so I ended up with the Kanjiniti. I'm tolerating it fine. My son does research work with cancer drugs and he's says that the bio similar hasn't appeared to have big difference in results from the Herception results.
