So, on the heels of my news that my numbers ticked up (see other thread) I am just wondering if my moderate... okay, lets be honest - moderatly heavy (binge) drinking could reduce the absorbtion/effectiveness of my Tasigna.
I know all about the liver problems - and have watched my liver panel closely (its perfect) but I have been hitting it hard lately (work stress, marriage stress, cancer stress... functioning alcoholic since I was 21).
Neither of my Oncs have ever told me/asked me about alcohol and the disease or my meds, but I thought Id throw it out here, too. I know its dangerous, unhealthy, and all the rest - what Im asking about here is a direct link between my drinking and the possibility its harming the effectiveness of the drug.
* for the record, its decently easy for me to have periods of cessation with alcohol - so I am confident I stop altogether. Its the moderation that has always been hard for me.
