I’m really struggling with taking 20 mg of Dexamethasone weekly. It’s 50 degrees here and I’m sweating like I’m in the Caribbean…. Can anyone explain why we need to take all the dex in one day? I wish we could take 1 a day for 5 days…. Thanks in advance for any suggestions…. I have no idea if this will be my maintenance therapy for the rest of my life but it’s not a great maintenance plan for me…
How long a length of time does a person stay on Revlimid
Gail, you have to be careful with Zometa, because it affects your teeth and jaws, Dentists don’t want to work in your teeth, they said if they pull a tooth it never heel.
I have that problem now.
I am about to go on Medicare and was SHOCKED at the cost of the copay for Revlimid which I am starting as maintenance therapy. Even with the supplemental prescription coverage, it is obscenely expensive. Why is there no generic available? I am wondering how others deal with this? We don't qualify for the Leukemia/Lymphoma Society assistance program. Anything else out there? Thank you.

I am in remission after stem cell transplant but I was prescribed Revlimid as maintenance therapy. I have to take it until relapse. What is your experience with this medication.
Taking revlamid for almost a year with no problem and suddenly I developed a rash and now have diarrhea. Anyone have these problems? Thanks
@A MyMyelomaTeam Member I have heard those can be really painful. I hope you're recovering and that the eliquis works well to prevent those in the future.
I take PhysicianNaturals C3 Curcumin (PN). I've been testing Dr's Best C3 Curcumin. Though Dr's Best is a little smaller and easier to swallow, it gives me very bad indigestion when I take all 8 at… read more
Do any Part D drug plans cover all of the cost of Revlimid? Which Part D drug policies pay the most on Revlimid in Colorado?
Interesting. I have found the dosage does not effect the cost. My copay has been 400 per month for either 5mg or 10 mg for 21 days a month. That was before I got VA to give me community care.
My husband started revlimid this week for maintenance. He had stem cell transplant in January 2020 and has been doing well. He is having itching mostly on his scalp. Has anyone else had this and how long did it last? Thank you.
I had severe itching on my legs....the skin looked like lizard skin and I was miserable. That was the only place...weird. But I was using a steroid cream but then I found that Gold Bond lotion for… read more
