Drink a large glass of water when taking the med, do not take the med on an empty stomach, if you still feel that the stomach pain has not minimized it is recommended to talk to the doc who prescribed the med as he/she would know your medical history and would help, you could however read more details on: https://www.drugs.com/gleevec.html, hope this helps?
I had this same problem when I took Gleevec. I had to have 3 upper gi's while on it in 21/2 yrs. It made the bottom of my stomach raw the Doc said. He put me on Previcid 30 mg. morning & night. That seemed to be the thing that worked. I made sure that I took the Gleevec after a meal. I had to eat small meals because the Gleevec would make me feel bloated & nauseated. I just had to eat 6 small meals a day instead of 3 large ones. Talk to your Doc, mine ended up sending me to a Gastroenterologist. Hope this helps!
