My husband is on Tasigna. He's had a nasty hacking cough/upper respiratory thing for what seems like forever now. He's been going back and forth to his Primary Care doc who gave him z-pack/Azithromycin; (two courses over the period of a couple months) also did a chest X ray and strep throat test and whatever other tests he could think of (all negative, he's just got the "crud")
The cough has come and gone and come and gone and now is back with a vengence - I'm afraid he's gong to cough up a lung! He went back again today to primary Doc who just prescribed Amoxicillan which is a pretty heavy duty anti biotic. Primary doc is well aware of the CML (he's the one who saw the high WBC and referred him PRONTO to a hematologist) but I am a little concernd about interaction of Tasigna + Amoxicillan.
