You should talk with your doctors about getting a prescription sleeping aid. They can find something that has the least side effects in conjunction with the TKI.

One thing he can use in the meantime is benedryl. No problems there with Sprycel.
"You can't change the direction of the wind but you can adjust your sails."
DX 12/08; Gleevec 400mg; liver toxicity; Sprycel 100mg.; CCyR 4/10; MMR 8/10; Pleural Effusion 2/12; Sprycel 50mg. Maintaining MMR; 2/15 PCRU; 8/16 drifting in and out of undetected like a wave meeting the shore. Retired 12/23/2016! 18 months of PCRU, most recent at Mayo on 7/25/17 was negative at their new sensitivity reporting of 0.003.<p>

Unisom is just an antihistimine called diphenhydramine, same as Benedryl. So it is OK to use with TKI drugs. But you could save money using a generic benedryl diphenhyrdamine antihistimine.

I have taken Ambien on and off with Sprycel for a few years. I have difficulty sleeping and OTC meds do not work for me. Hopefully you can find an OTC that works for your husband. Good luck.
