Trey once mentioned that taking vitamin C, and folic acid was good for cell generation. From what I can remember, he also said Gleevec was absorbed best in an acidic stomach, so drinking orange juice with G was a good idea. What about Sprycel? I have a few questions:
- Is it best to take Sprycel alone (without any vitamins, or other drugs)?
- What aides in the absorption of Sprycel?
- What may decrease its efficacy (food, vitamins, anti-depressants, birth-control, etc.)?
So, any recommendations on a site that can explain how this drug is processed in the liver, etc. and what it binds to good or bad?
I keep on thinking I may be getting a slower response to Sprycel because of something I may be doing (or not). I was having a pretty speedy response to Sprycel until I started birth control pills. But it is a Catch-22. Without the hormone, I would get extremely anemic again and be at risk for hemorrhaging with each period---again. Just assuming that it may be the estrogen...
Any input would be greatly welcome!
