    How to Use Imatinib?

    Take imatinib orally with an 8 oz glass of water and a meal as directed by your doctor, generally once or twice per day. Don’t crush these tablets. If you have issues swallowing the tabs whole, dissolve them completely in a glass of apple juice or water. Stir until the tablet is dissolved and drink right away.

    The dose you’re prescribed depends on your condition, response to treatment, and any other medications you might be taking. Ensure you give a list of your medications to your doctor and pharmacist (including non prescription drugs and herbal products) so that they can monitor for interactions.
