I am currently on 300 mg gleevec. Diagnosed May2011. Started on tasagna but got very sick.below is a years worth of PCR results. All international scale. How am I doing. Dr is thinking about increasing to 400 gleevec or switching to sprycel. Not looking forward to either.

That is Major Molecular Response (MMR) which is the gold standard for response.  So you have done very well.  If the side effects are a real problem, then messing with success is ill-advised.  Otherwise, take as much drug as you can withstand while still living a normal life.
