Has anyone that's taking Tasigna lost a lot of weight while taking it? I didn't notice it when on a half dose, but since going to a full dose, I'm dropping a lot.
Tasigna and Weight Loss
Posted 23 June 2013 - 02:59 PM
I have been recently diagnosed with chronic phase CML and started taking Tasigna in January. I have gained back 15lbs of weight/muscle mass that I lost from inactivity due to my enlarged spleen when I was initially diagnosed. I find that Tasigna does not have any impact on my weight.

I have lost just over 17 pounds after I switched from Gleevec to Tasigna in April. I lost 8 lbs in the first week of switching which I think had more to do with the water retention issues I had with Gleevec. Overall, I am more active on Tasigna than I ever dreamed of being Gleevec so that probably makes a difference as well.
