People with certain types of cancer, namely leukemia, dermatofibrosarcoma protuberans, and a certain kind of gastrointestinal tumor known as GIST, are often prescribed Gleevec® (imatinib mesylate). This drug blocks the release of an enzyme that cancer cells need to multiply and grow. Gleevec comes in tablet form, and is taken once or twice a day with food and water. Like most chemotherapy drugs, nausea, diarrhea, and fatigue are commonly reported reactions.
