I have been on Tasigna for about a year now. I know not to eat anything during the 2 hours before taking the pill and the one hour after taking the pill. But what about drinking? Am I allowed to drink a soda or hot tea during that 3 hour window? I suspect it would be OK as my ONC mentioned taking the pill with a high acid soda like Coke or orange juice might help absorption.
Often we will go and have hot tea while my son is in soccer practice. So far I have been the odd man out because that is right when I am supposed to not be eating anything. But I got to thinking that maybe drinking tea or a soda might be OK. I don't drink alcohol at all so this is just in regards to sodas, teas etc.
