drug interaction between Vesicare and Gleevec

I care for my father on a full time bases and I would like to know what if any drug interactions there is between Vesicare and Gleevec. The pharmacy that I currently use for my fathers prescriptions refilled his Vesicare last month with no problems, then today the same pharmacy different pharmacist said there is a drug interaction between Vesicare and Gleevec which is preventing her (pharmacist) to not refill the vesicare. She told me that she needs to contact my fathers physican to fix the problem. Please tell me what drug interaction there is between Vesicare and Gleevec. My dad take Gleevec for his leukemia CML to exact and a whole bunch of medication for heart disease and medication for Emphysema/COPD. Please can you clearify this for me.:confused: Sincerely, Leticia Honesto caregiver to Juan Luevano Jr.

I have been on Vesicare for about a year. Just recently, I forgot to order the perscription (because I take 6 and was confused). I notice more of a "problem" when I drink alcohol or coffee. I also notice that the extreme overnight drymouth has subsided.

Just wondering whether the abrupt stopping of the medicine is detrimental??
