I am wondering how long the side effects usually last. I know that everyone is different, and how their body responds isn't the same. I hate the side effects, and they have been a problem for me since I started. I was a little shocked to find out I have to stay on the Gleevec for 10 years total even when I get to "full remission". Any advice on how to deal better with the nausea and joint pain (those are my two biggest ones) would be appreciated. Also I am wondering if anyone else gets these crazy "palpitations"? Sometimes it feels like my heart is going to beat right out of my chest! Immediately after I have a spike of anxiety. It doesn't last long, but it is very uncomfortable. Thanks for any feedback!
