Glivec, Joint Pain and Vitamin B12

After Ah Jon is taken off Tasigna, he has to continue taking Glivec. His joint pain returned. After two years, we decided to ask him to try Vitamin B12 and see whether it is going to help him. Believe it or not, his pain is now mostly gone! So Vitamin B12 is effective in his case in treating pain from the effect of Glivec.

He has to go back to Glivec because we have retired and his Tasigna runs out and we have to depend on government clinic for his drug, which dispense only Glivec.
