Time to clear system

I began Sprycel January 1, d/ced it 1/30. How soon can I expect that it is completely out of my system? ## Soon after beginning Sprycel, I experienced shortness of breath, and serious edema, plus serious tiredness. My MD and I agreed to stop the Sprycel, be off CML Rx for 1 month, resume Gleevec which I had taken before. It is now 2 weeks later, I am improved, more energy, less (but still present) edema. Should I expect further improvement, or suspect that my symptoms, although coincident with taking Sprycel, may not be due to the Sprycel? ## Hello, Melba! How are you feeling? I'm very sorry about the problems that you're having. Those can be typical side effects of Sprycel, as listed by the FDA.

one side: 528 other side:8ms or sw8

It is a oval shaped white pill. It is pretty small in size (size of a tic tac) It says 528 on one side. The other side either says SW8 or 8MS. My dog was chewing on it put i caught her before it was eaten. Wondering why there is a pill laying around on the floor and whos it was. ## Well, I can't answer either one of those questions, since my ESP is malfunctioning today (LOL), but I can tell you what this tablet contains! BMS 528 is a 50mg Sprycel tablet, which contains the active ingredient Dasatinib, this is a cancer medication. Most commonly used to treat chronic myelogenous leukemia. Glad you got it, before your dog had a complete snack! You can read more about it here: My guess is someone accidentally dropped it, do you know someone that has been under treatment for Leukemia?
