Haven I mentioned that since I started taking Gleevec I wake up at 3, 4, or 5 and can't go back to sleep. My pcp prescribed sleeping pills that really didn't help this so I stopped taking them and now I can't go to sleep at all. I think I doze off briefly sometimes because I remember dreams but I always feel like I am awake. I just stay in the bed hoping I will drift off until my alarm goes off but I am always up.
I take my Gleevec around 7:30 with food I stopped taking my Reglan (nausea med) and I stopped taking Xanax I feel more stable but still can't sleep. My emotional state has been shaky to say the least since I started Gleevec they want me to take antidepressant but they are just nasty to get on and off so that is a resounding NO!!!! I don't want to keep throwing more pills at the problems that are caused by a pill.
I am fighting and will keep fighting to take my life back from CML.
