A week ago I switched from brand name Glivec to Apo Imatinib generic. I had been on glivec for 8 years with relatively low to no side effects but a change in insurance benefits resulted in the need to switch.
Since switching I have had awful vertigo, it’s worse during physical exertion but even continues sometimes when sitting, to the point I don’t feel comfortable driving.
Curious if anyone else has had these symptoms? Or if there are other generic branded imatinib providers you have found that might be better than this Apotex? Would love a suggestion of a brand to ask my pharmacist for.
I’m 40 and a mother of 2 and definitely don’t want to be dealing with ongoing vertigo!
