Hello Anonymous,

Welcome to EmpowHER. Congratulations on the successful response!

For the benefit of all our readers, chronic myelogenous leukemia (CML) is cancer that starts inside bone marrow., which is the soft tissue in the center of bones that helps form all blood cells. CML causes an uncontrolled growth of immature cells that make a certain type of white blood cell called myeloid cells. The diseased cells build up in the bone marrow and blood.

Cause of CML is related to an abnormal chromosome called the Philadelphia chromosome.

Glivic contains an active substance called imatinib. This medicine works by inhibiting the growth of abnormal cells.

In reviewing reported side effects of this medication, I did see dry mouth but not bitter taste in mouth. That is not to say it isn't a side effect, but maybe not reported.

Anonymous, consider reporting this to Dr. Menon.
