Last week I had my EKG test and it was normal. However the cardiologist suggested for me to have
an ultra sound/echocardiogram of my heart just to make sure that Tasigna is not affecting my heart.
I've asked him did he suspect something suspicious from an EKG test and that's why he is recommending an ultra sound,
then he said: "No, not at all but sometimes these medication that you are taking can have some affect on the
heart valves and the muscles that EKG can't see".
Now, I'm not sure what to do. Is this test really necessary? Is it too soon since I'm on Tasigna for only 8 months?
But I have spoken to one lady so far who claims that she had a heart attack and strongly beliefs that
Tasigna have caused it because se never had any heart issues before.
Have any of you had an ultra sound while taking Tasigna or any other TKI's????
Any input is greatly appreciated!
