Thalidamide worked well, but it caused peripheral neuropathy. It was given with high dose dexamethasone (40 mg a day for 4 days, 4 days off, repeat). The dex lows were extreme, so I scheduled them for weekends as best I could. I took a day off work as needed. All my thinking/planning had to be done on the 4 days on dex because I felt so low the other days.
