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.
Your referral drug person should be able to help. There are several sources for assistance, American Cancer, Healthwell Foundation and others that may help. Best of luck!
How long a length of time does a person stay on Revlimid
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…
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.
My oncologist said that I’d be going to 10mg of Revlimid for maintenance therapy. Said I should feel much better. Anyone have firsthand experience??
Kaiser is now only offering the generic form of revlimid.. The diarrhea just being on revl is way too much to handle sometimes. Kaiser is saying the generic form is the same, the side effects are the same, how do I know that. Plus , I Have been very lucky not to have paid very much for Revlimid, But the generic form I have to pay $50 for.. Does not make any sense.. I would rather stay on revlimid not the generic form
