I am a 50 year old female and was diagnosed in 11/10 and have been on 400 mg Gleevec ever since. I found out I was PCRU in 3/12 (hooray!). Over the past month, I have begun to experience significant hair loss. I know this is a potential side effect of the Gleevec but I was fortunate not to deal with it until now. I am curious if this will continue or if it is just a temporary side effect like many of the others I have experienced. I practice law full time and it is starting to become more noticeable. Anyone with experience to share would be appreciated.
