Mark Says:


I've been on Gleevec for about 6 years being treated for HES with no side effects once regulated. Just over the past few months I have gotten joint and muscle pain and noticed this is a small side effect using this product. I have been tested for RA, Parvo B19 and countless other items. Just wondering could side effects surface years later?

Yes, it is possible, our bodies do change with time, so it is always possible to suddenly experience new side effects, as time passes.

Other side effects are listed by the FDA as possibly including nausea, dizziness, headache, and hair loss.

How are you doing, now? Has there been any change? Are you on any other medications?
