... some of you? Gleevec (I was on it for 2 1/2yrs.) didn't show it's real side effects on me until I was on it for 2 months or more. So far my bloodwork is alot better i.e. platelets, red & white cells. I lost a lot of weight while on Gleevec & now my appetite is better, gained 10 lbs. I would like to know of any side effects I may or may not get that u all are experiencing. Thanks!
