I have been on Tasigna for 7 days. Yesterday I got a horrible stomach-ache and have had it since. I feel a little cold and achy. I'm wondering if I am really sick or if this is just the Tasigna? I sure hope it isn't because nothing I do will make the pain go away. I have pain in the pit of my stomach.

Whether Tasigna-related or a bug of some sort,since you are just starting on the drug, your physician will want to be aware of any possible side effects at this stage of only 7 days, so if symptoms are not improving, you should call your physician. Fluids are important while on this drug. Keep in touch and I hope you feel better !!!

Dx'd: 8/2008. Started Gleevec 400 mg 11/08. 

Drug break 2011.

Started Tasigna 4/11 450 mg.

Reduction to 300 mg Tasigna 1/2012.

PCRU 9/2012.

12/2012 Detectable.

PCRU 4/2013 through 3/2015. (Reduced to 150 mg 7/2014)

12/2015  ? slightly detectable at probably less than 0.01% per Mayo Clinic.

4/2016 PCRU. Still at 150 mg Tasigna.


CESSATION: stopped treatment 7/20/2017. 

9/6/2017:  barely detectable at 0.01%. 

12/11/2017: PCR at 0.09% (did not do the monthly PCR testing.) 

12/18/2017: Inevitable call from Onc. Started back on Tasigna at 150 mg. (Considering Sprycel low dose.)
