I've been on Tasigna for 2 weeks now. I'm currently having weekly labs. This morning's labs had my WBC down to 2.6 and my neutrophils under 1.0 to 0.78. I'm being told that if my neutrophils get down below 0.5, then the will take me off the drug for a week (which I do understand why). For the most part, everything else seems to be doing ok with the lab results. RBC coming up, hemoglobin coming up, plateletes staying in the normal range, and liver acting normal. Since a few mini headaches in the very beginning I have not had any
other noticable side effects. I am getting over a cough/nasal drip, but I know that was caused by other factors.
I am not really concerned since it has only been 2 weeks and my body is probably still adjusting. I just wanted to get other people's thoughts/comments/words of encouragement, etc. on this experience.
