Well, i used to take finasteride 1mg (propecia) for hair loss before my DX. I'm not planning to use it again but i'm curious if there is some interaction with the TKIs. I'm asking this because i was on propecia for 11 years before DX and  maybe my body had to much propecia at the beginning of treatment etc. etc.. thanks in advance.

There is no reason to suspect it had any impact on Gleevec effectiveness.
