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. However, you may need some help to remove that edema, such a your doctor prescribing a fluid pill. Thus, it would be best to consult them again, to see what they recommend.

Typical side effects of Gleevec may include nausea, diarrhea, headaches, visual disturbances and loss of appetite.

Is there anything else I can help with?
