I have been on (1) Tasigna for about a year with very little side effects except feeling tired all the time. My oncologist has changed my dosage to 2 a day.  Everytime I take the second pill, I start experiencing severe heart burn.    I take Dexilant and Tums with very little relief. Any suggestions or help would be appreciated.

I had to be taken off Tasigna because of reflux (http://community.lls...e/106399#106399).

My worst issue was not being able to sleep.  I got suggestions from a lot of the guys here.  I bought bed wedges to raise by upper back.  I put pillows on top of pillows.  I took PPIs(Prilosec, Prevacid, Zantac, etc..), I ate special yogurt (with bacteria?) for months and still!!!

I was taken off TKIs for 3 weeks and start Gleevec about a month and a half ago.  My reflux issues are much better!

It was only about 4-5 months before my severe reflux crept in.  You're up to a year now so you definitely lasted longer than me.

Does it let you sleep at night?
