Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

I'm Marylisa, and I'm a survivor of Chronic Myeloid Leukemia

I have been on Tasignia for a year now. I just noticed today that 1/3 Of the back of my head is bald. I am shocked and devastated. My hair has been coming out after washing it a lot but I didn’t know that I was going bald. Has anybody else had this happen so far into treatment?

Hi, I'm Bobbie P.

I have been on Tasigna for 6 months and I have lost more than half of my hair. It is very frustrating. I use to have full beautiful hair.

I was on Tasigna for a few months before having to switch to a different TKI. There is a class action lawsuit against the tasigna manufacturer. You should check this out and see if your problem was caused by the drug. Good luck.
