Looks like I'll be switching to Tasigna. 400 x 2 per day in hopes of a better chance of getting to PCRU. Gleevac is been slow.
I have been on Gleevac 400mg since DX July 2011 and have no side effects at all other than some mild eyelid edema. Switched to 600mg last year. Still no side effects so handling it well.
I'm a little nervous after reading some of the potential side effects. Mainly the Heart related ones like "Sudden Death!
Does Tasigna have a record of this ever happening?
I work out a lot. Gleevac has been great side effect wise. I would hate to drop dead on the treadmill .
I don't take any other meds. I'm 45 years old and in otherwise perfect health.
Can some chime in that have made a similar switch and their observations?
If you started on Tasigna I would like to hear from you as well.
