 Gleevec Imatinib, STI-571

Does Gleevec work for accute eczema and accute dry skin as per rumor ? ## I don't have any information on this, but I can tell you that there have been several people posting that it has worked and several others who have heard of it and have been asking the same types of questions Gleevec is currently approved to treat certain types of cancer, so the side effects of these types of medications can be pretty prodigious and I am not certain it would be worth using to treat a skin condition. You can read more on it here: Does anyone else have experience using this? ...

gleevec and meloxicam what similar compounds do these drugs have in common
I have had similar side effects to taking Gleevec and Meloxicam. What compounds are the same in these two meds that I am allergic to. Mainly, severe facial swelling. Thank you. ## I recently had a pharmacist look up possible similarities in Gleevec and Meloxicam and they were magnesium stearate, silicon dioxide, and microcrystalline cellulose. ALL are fillers in medications. Supposedly, pharmaceutical companies use cheaper fillers in generic meds. But neither of these meds are generics. Does anyone know anything about microcrystalline cellulose?? As to its source?? ## Hello, Janet! How are you? Meloxicam is a generic, the name brand for it is Mobic. But I've never heard anything about them using 'cheaper' fillers, there is a certain list of them they can choose from that are... ...

H86 cancer cure
After a bit of drilling down and reading I think I have found out what H-86 really is... en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gleevec ## There are actually a few other discussion threads on this same topic that talk about H86 and how it works as a cancer treatment. However, I'm not sure if everyone is on the same page as far as what it really is. You can view each thread by visiting the links below: Discuss/h86-cancer-treatment-252777.htm Discuss/h-86-cancer-cure-250866.htm Discuss/h-86-cancer-cures-252713.htm By the way, have you also looked into CBD's from cannabis as a viable cure for cancer? Studies show that it's actually more effective than chemo, and without the side effects. So this might be something to consider researching as well. I hope this helps! ## This Product is called AVE... ...

new side effect
I have been in remission for three years during my last dr. apt. I was told I my blood test came back a little anemic but not to worry and continue treatment wiht 400 mg. Gleevec daily, any one else run into this ## Gleevec can cause anemia, in some people that use it, but there is generally no reason to worry, unless it becomes severe. Did your doctor tell you the specific level? You also may want to ask why type of test they did, as the visual ones that just look at the color of the blood aren't the most accurate, because colors are a matter of perception. ...

Is this drug helping or is it slowly killing
Please let me know if anyone is taking this drug and what effects if any its having on you or your loved one. ## Tommy, I don't know your situation and why it was prescribed. Here is what I do know. In September, 2005, my dad (88 years old) was diagnosed with Chronic Mylegenous Leukemia. The wonder drug that we were trying to get at the time was Gleevec which we were told had made significant medical breaththroughs in this type of cancer. However, my dad had no RX plan and it cost $1,432 (discounted) and we were waiting for a response from the distributor if we could get help in getting it. While we were waiting, my dad was prescribed Hydroxyuerea and he was taking 1000 mg twice per day for about 2-1/2 weeks when he, himself, refused all medication after being diagnosed with stomach... ...

Gleevec and Skin Pigmentation
I have been taking Gleevec for 3 1/2 years for CML. I am currently in remission with little/no side effects. For the last 2 years, the pigment on my face has been changing, and recently quite drastically. It seems as though the melatonin around my eyes is migrating to my cheeks. From my eyebrows down to approx 1 inch below my lower lashes has no pigment. It seems as though my cheeks are gathering all of the pigment. The patches of darker coloration are almost triangular and span across my face. I wear sunscreen everyday, and sunlight does make the discoloration worse. Is this skin discoloration or migration of pigment a side effect of the Gleevec? ## From what I have read, yes, it has been known to cause pigmentation changes with long-term use. Have you spoken to your doctor about it? #... ...
