My fatigue comes in waves. I may go a few days feeling somewhat fair, then a few days of being so sleepy that I cant hold my eyes open. Don' let it get you down. Focus on results. Talk to your dr about the dose you are on. If it is a really high dose, consider lowering it. I am on 200mg per day and my results are great. My dr didnt like the lower dose, but so far it has proved to be effective. The brain fog.....I forgot what i was going to say. lol. sorry, but I have just learned to accept it. It was much much worse when I was on Sprycel
Diagnosed in September 2011. Tried one year of Sprycel. Had great response. Became undetectable in a few months. Changed to Tasigna hoping for less side effects. Self medicated myself down to 20% dose and held for 3 years before becoming detectable again. It has been a journey that has helped me realize what life is about! I am all about a balanced life. I firmly agree with my decision to lower my dose. What is life if you aren't living? Mine will never be the way it was, but it is going to be as good as I can make it! Drs PRACTICE medicine, we can guide our dr to help us with a better life! Don't settle until it's acceptable to you!
