      I have been on Revlamid for almost 3 years. I have had very little in the way of side effects. Occassional bouts of diahrea some neuropathy but it is impossible to say if that is due to the revlamid or not. Considering at the time of diagnosis they gave me 2 weeks and here I am, almost 3 years later with less than 1% myeloma markers in my blood, I consider Revlamid my wonder drug.

      I'm sure you have heard this befor, Everybody is different . I have been on Rev and Dex, started last April. I didn't have any side effects except a tiny bit of numbness around my mouth and food and Coffee tasted off. Something I could live with. If you have problems with Rev. It comes in 15, 20, and 25 dosages they can go up or down if you have any problems. Don't be scared you won't know until you try and in the end it is up to you!
      Good luck Cat
