I was wondering if anyone has experienced this with Tasigna. Any help would be appreciated.
I recently switched to Tasigna from Gleevac a few months back and was put on 300mg twice a day. Gleevac couldn't seem to get me to MMR after two years.
Slowly my Bili Total began to rise and eventually hit 3.8. My Alt, Ast also were up so my Dr. took me of for 2 1/2 weeks until my numbers came back down. I restarted at 300mg once a day and everything held ok. After two weeks of 300 a day he had me go back up to 300 twice a day as before. They shot right back up again within 2 weeks.
He then had me reduce to 400mg once a day with no break and Bili is now at 4.0 now. AST 56, ALT 127. I have absolutely no side effects I can feel or see.
Can 300mg a day be enough?
I'm sure I'm going to have to take another break.
At this point I'm getting very upset. What to do?
Thanks in Advance!
