I'm not a drinker and haven't had a drink in months. I started on Sprycel on Aug 6th and haven't had a drink since starting. I'm going out w/ the girls soon and want to have a couple of drinks.
Can I have a drink or 2 while on Sprycel?

Sharon: Im on Gleevec but my onc told me to live life like i used to, and that a few drinks were no problem at all.
