I have had several face-to-face and telephone consultations with my haematologist and my general practitioner concerning dizziness.
I have not achieved a major molecular response on imatinib after 18 months and have been moved to dasatinib. One week after first taking dasatinib 100 mg, I suddenly felt very disoriented and was extremely ill for 24 hours. Initially, this was diagnosed as gastro enteritis but now everyone appears to be in agreement that it is more likely to be a side-effect of the dasatinib.
After seven weeks now, I am still feeling dizzy particularly when I leave my home. It is similar to feeling mildly drunk on a couple of glasses of wine. I do not feel it when working at the computer but the sensation is greatest when I am walking in the open.
Has anyone by chance had a similar experience?
