I didn't want to step on Jadrian's post so I thought I would answer you on here since we are talking about acid reflux meds. I took Prilosec for several years and also when I was on Gleevec, although I had no specific stomach issues on Gleevec. However, when I developed liver toxicity from the G, I was also taken off Prilosec because it is hard on the liver.
How does your onc feel about you being on Sprycel and taking Protonix, which is also a ppi like Prilosec and Nexium, and is contraindicated as they are supposed to reduce the ability of Sprycel to do its job? I suppose there are instances when you just have no other alternative?
