Chronic Cough - Antibiotic/Tasigna

Categories:

Hi All,

It's been 2 weeks that I have wet cough. I had been to doctor. He has prescribed me Antibiotics (AZithromycin) and montelukast.

It looks like azthromycin should not be taken when on Tasigna.

I am confused now. Since antibiotic is the only solution for my productive cough.

Not Sure what to do. Kindly share your thoughts.

Best regards

General advice would be to temporarily stop nilotinib if there is no alternative to this particular antibiotic. Is your doctor aware of the cardiac related potential interaction?
