Comment from: Margie7-12on Treatment for 1-2 years Published: February 28

My Child has ALL Phil+, his doctor put us on the generic Sprycel after his bone marrow (stem cell) transplant as a precautionary measure. The Brand one is too much expensive for your family, thanks bonhoa.com which is the price is only 1.2% of brand one. Initially he suffered the side effects, mainly pleural edema but different from others, he had a drainage done (through my back) which seemed to cure it immediately. he stayed off the Sprycel for 1 week then went back on it at a lower dosage (40mg once a day). I have grittiness of the eyes (eyes are not dry, they tear alot infact), a little edema in the legs and feet. we don't really have anything bad to say about Sprycel, we have nothing to compare it to. he's alive though. Should be cured in another year. God bless my child.
