    My mom was doing 20mg of Dexamethasone everyday for 4 days, and then she was off for four days. She took revlimid everyday for 3 weeks and then was off for a week before starting her second 3 week round of revlimid. She is currently off these drugs because she was suffering from extreme hallucinations, dysphoria, confusion... which might have been triggered and enhanced by infection (light case of pnemonia, urinary tract infection, and elevated thyroid levels). Did you have any of these issues? She's only gone through 1 1/2 rounds of chemo and it seems to have taken quite a toll on her physically and mentally.
