I have been on Gleevac since Sept. 2004. My dosage increased from 400mg to 600mg because my counts were showing signs of resistance. my doc does pcr testing at my urging. lately the sun is draining me completely. i teach and have recess outside and afterwards my head swims and my legs are so heavy and throbbing. has anyone experienced this? I take my meds at night right before bed with a light snack and a glass of water. anything with milk or dairy and i'll have VERY loose stool. beef does the same thing. my skin has lost a lot of color and my feet swell on occasion but for the most part the side effects are tolerable. please share your symptoms with me and what you do to treat them. just to make sure i'm still kinda normal:)
