I have shared BJ's caringbridge earlier with you as we fought Blast Crisis.  He is awaiting his SCT,  I now want to share w/ you that we were told not to mix Sprycel and Zofran as they both can cause QT Prolongation.  BJ was on Gleevec from 12/09 until blast crisis mid-June.  He began 7/3 Induction and spent 29 days at Cleve Clinic.  He was changed to Sprycel and remains on 140 mg Sprycel (a high dosage but they have to keep blast cells away so he can have best SCT scenario going-in.  The pharmacist and doctor both called us, along with my insurance company...soooo someone must have had bad QTP experience.  BJ is on high dosage Sprycel and only took Zofran when he had Meripenem IV for two weeks...thankfully did not stay on Zofran!  Happy weekend to all of you!
