I am aware of the moderate interaction between Gleevec and naproxen (Aleve), but I just wanted to see if anyone has experience with a short-term course of these two medications together, and any combined side effects you might have had. In addition, I wanted to see if it had any impact to your treatment response (PCR fluctuation?).
I am dealing with a nagging knee injury from cycling and need to pursue a 2-week course of 2x/daily naproxen (440mg), so I can promote some healing and get over the hump of this injury (per the knee doc). However, I've been afraid to do this for fear of impacting my response to treatment. Also, the best time for me to take naproxen is with breakfast at the same time as Gleevec, so absorption is also a concern.
Any experiences to share?
