Have been on Tasigna almost 3 years and have had a runny nose most of that time. At the moment, I cannot identify exactly when I do not have it but there are times when it is not occurring. I had meant to post a question in regard to this also but never got around to it. I do not have seasonal allergies and there are no other symptoms associated with it. I cannot really identify any ear plugging sensation associated with it. Thanks for posting.
Dx'd: 8/2008. Started Gleevec 400 mg 11/08.
Drug break 2011.
Started Tasigna 4/11 450 mg.
Reduction to 300 mg Tasigna 1/2012.
PCRU 4/2013 through 3/2015. (Reduced to 150 mg 7/2014)
12/2015 ? slightly detectable at probably less than 0.01% per Mayo Clinic.
4/2016 PCRU. Still at 150 mg Tasigna.
CESSATION: stopped treatment 7/20/2017.
