Hi, my name is Izham. I am now taking tasigna 400 mg twice daily. Its been 4 years since i’m diagnosed with cml. I’ve been dealing with hair loss for about 2 years which I don’t know whether its the side effects of tasigna or not. I want to ask a question on taking minoxodil and finasteride for my hair loss problem. Does these medications I state above will affect me or tasigna effects if I started taking them?

Taking minoxodil and finasteride for hair loss
Hi, Izham. Hope you're fine. hair loss/thinning is a well known side effect of tasigna (i also have this side effect). Minoxidil is fine with tasigna (it's a topycal solution and there's no known interaction with tasigna and some patients also use minoxidil with tasigna with no problems, but very limited good effects on hair loss). I really don't know about finasteride, but it's a pill and it's broken in the liver, so i would talk to my doctor before take this medication. good luck!
