Hello. I am new here. I was diagnosed with CML last May. My doctor started me out on Gleevec and then switched me to Tasigna. I was feeling pretty good for a while but recently started to feel weak and shaky after standing at work for a couple of hours. I also get dark circles under my eyes. It is almost the same feeling that I had before I was diagnosed. My blood work looked good during my last doctor visit with the exception of low iron. I am on my 3rd round of iron but no luck feeling any better. Has anyone out there had and problems like this while on Tasigna?

I'm on Gleevec, and I was anemic - I take a daily iron tablet along with vitamin C and a multi B vitamin - which contains folic acid, both C and folic acid help the body absorb the iron.
