I was diagnosed Ph+ CML in Nov (for my birthday) and began Tasigna 200 mg Dec 23 (my Christmas present). Numbers are already down in the normal ranges. Onc said this was caught very early, thank goodness.
I have just had some of the minor side effects, scalp rash, constipation, excessive face flushing sometimes; those I can manage. But the one that really bothers me is my vision; eyes that are always bloodshot and itchy. Plus, my vision is not always clear. I know it's from the Tasigna, as I had to miss 3 days of meds due to problems with script refill. By the 3rd day, my eyes were better. Anyone else have this, and what did you do about it? It doesn't seem to be listed in the side effects papers with the drug. Onc said to see my eye dr if it continues; maybe I need stronger lenses. Hmmm, not sure.
I am so glad to have found this forum and folks who understand! Thanks all.
