Drug Interactions

Many patients wonder and worry about possible interactions between GIST drugs such as Gleevec or Sutent and other non-cancer drugs they are taking, or simply about interactions among the non-cancer drugs themselves.

For Gleevec interactions you can check:

  • the prescribing information at [Gleevec.com ]
  • the NCCN GIST Task Force Update. You can access this through [this link ] on the GIST Support International site to download the NCCN document and then scroll down to the large tables of drug interactions.


For Sutent interactions you can check:

  • the prescribing information at [Sutent.com]
  • * the NCCN GIST Task Force Update. You can access this through [this link ] on the GIST Support International site and then scroll down to the large tables of drug interactions.
