Side Effects

It's been two days on the Gleevec. I get pretty sick at night and don't sleep well. I don't vomit but I feel very nauseous, to the point where I feel like I can't move. I take the pill about 1 hour before bedtime so in the hopes that I'll sleep through the worst of it.

I'm also taking a drug called Allopurinol to prevent a buildup of excess uric acid. Apparently as all the excess white cells die off uric acid is produced.
