Just switched from Gleevac to Tasigna 300mg twice a day. About three days after starting I'm experiencing what feels like a slight cramping/soreness leg pain throughout both legs. Mainly in the butt and hamstring areas. Never had this with Gleevac.

Is this something that will go away after some time? I know it takes some time to adjust to a new med.

Is there anything I can do to help out other than Advil?

Clifee I had that the first week of taking Tasigna which I have been on since last february, I had the legs and buttocks muscle pain also I bones also hurt some. My doc took me off for a week  and then put me on half a dose which I have been taking every since that time.  I reached MMR a few months ago.  I am taking 150 mg of tasigna twice a day.
