Unexplained pains after starting Tasigna

My wife is on tasigna for over a year now and has gad some moderate heart problems first a slim heart rate 50bpm then latter up to 170bpm. Not on the same day. But also a lot of unexplained pains. Dr says it's not tasigna but only started happening once started on them ## According to the U.S. FDA it can cause those types of symptoms as side effects.

safe acid reflux medication while taking tasigna

tasigna

I'm trying to find out how I can obtain Tasigna for a minimal cost. It runs $10,000 a month. How can I get it cheaper? ## Hello. Laurie! How are you doing?

There are usually resources to help people that don't have coverage for those types of medications. Does anyone else have any ideas?
