Hi - I Am A 65 Year Old Pretty Long Term Survivor Of Multiple Myeloma. I Am Looking For Info Regarding Cost Of Revlimid

Hi - I Am A 65 Year Old Pretty Long Term Survivor Of Multiple Myeloma. I Am Looking For Info Regarding Cost Of Revlimid

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.

Try Walgreens. My doctor sent the prescription and they got me a grant. Might be worth a try.Prescription was for Revlamid. I am on medicare and grant picked up the balance.

Revlimid

Revlimid

Just was diagnosed on Wednesday and they are going to start Velcade, Revlimid and Decadron next week. I was reading that you must take a blood thinner with the Revlimid. Oncologist hematologist recommended a baby aspirin. Is this what everyone else is taking with Revlimid to prevent blood clots. Or are you taking something stronger? The risk of blood clots makes me nervous.

Revlimid

Revlimid

I’ve been on Revlimid for approximately 4 years with very good results thus far. I was diagnosed with MM 5 years ago and have NOT had a stem cell transplant. I’m just curious if other have also been on Revlimid without a transplant? If so, how long has it been. For those who were on Revlimid, and eventually needed a transplant, how long was the Revlimid effective? It’s my understanding at some point the drug will lose it’s effectiveness, and I will need to explore other available options… read more

A MyMyelomaTeam Member said:

I think that’s usually the protocol, to be on some type of maintenance chemo until it is no longer effective. There is no long term plan for me to get off the Revlimid unless it becomes ineffective… read more

Has Anyone Experienced A Rash While On Velcade, Revlimid And Dex?

Has Anyone Experienced A Rash While On Velcade, Revlimid And Dex?

I am just finishing my 4th VRD cycle before testing for stem cell transplant. On Saturday I noticed a rash on my back and chest. I have no fever and otherwise feel fine. I have contacted my doctor. Has anyone experienced a rash and how did you treat it? I only have two Revlimid pills left to take and I am finished with this cycle.

After almost a year of revlamid I now have a rash. Cream doctor recommended takes it away along with allergy meds. Will see Doctor this week to see if I can continue with Revlamid

Velcade, Dex & Liver Damage

Velcade, Dex & Liver Damage

My husband is on Velcade and Dexamethasone and up until now has had very few difficulties. However, in recent CMP and Gamma GT tests, the AST and ALT have been high, as was the Gamma GT number. He's being referred to a Hepatologist, but I am wondering if his MM protocol could be causing this. Been a year and a half on this protocol without any problem. Anyone else had any liver problems?
