Can we skip a treatment when side effects to much.?

From experience can anyone please tell me if we can front up to our onc treatment day and request a reprieve from the drugs? Seriously I'm now on a break and it's lovely however would be if I wasn't itching and burning all day and night as a drug skin reaction.  Nothing helps and I'm definitely sure my low feelings of late are due to lack of sleep and this . So I'm wondering if I can have a break providing bloods are  all good of course . I am on herceptin and perjeta and due in a week .

    As my oncologist says, we don't force any treatment on you. They advise us on the best course of treatment but at the end of the day it is our decision what we decide. Is it possible to get your dose reduced maybe to help with side effects. Either way I would stress to them how it's effecting you. Best of luck. :)
