I started with Tasigna this past Saturday. I havn't seen anything new for side effects yet. But this waiting 2 hours after the evening meal to take the Tasigna pill then wait another hour before I can have anything to eat, is something else. that 3 hours. I was ready to eat the hole bag of cookies, and the crumbs, when I could. The phone rang and I never even ate the cookies....
Now I will wait to see if I lose the hair on my legs, be so nice to not have to shave them. And for my arms, with Gleevec, I said I had fur on them, Hope I shed their too.
