I was switched to Glivec early this year after my doc was worried about PE and heart scan on Sprycel. I am tolerating the drug well and am much more active than I was before, even running again. However, I find I have a chronically dry, tight throat. (My nose is dried up as well) This affects my exercise as I am prone to choking and also affects my teaching. I am constantly sipping water, using lozenges etc.
Has anyone had this SE and if so did it get better over time? My GP doesn't seem to be able to give me anything to help. I'd appreciate any light shed on this. I've searched the forums and couldn't find anything.
