Reviews for Pomalidomide

PlasmaCellLeukemia · Taken for 6 months to 1 year May 29, 2019

Pomalyst (pomalidomide): "After 5 months of bortezomib, dexamethasone, thalidomide, cisplatin, doxorubicin, cyclophosphamide and etoposide (VDT PACE) regiment to reduce circulating plasma cells, I took Pomalyst for 5 months to further reduce the cancer in circulation and in bone marrow. Good response and had auto SCT (Autologous stem-cell transplantation). The transplant didn’t achieve a great response and being off treatment for 6 months, my counts were going up again. Restarted Pomalyst and have had a very good response in 9 weeks. Will continue treatment and hope for zero circulating cells. Will do a BMB in another 1.5 months. Neuropathy in toes and fingertips."

BigBadRed · Taken for 2 to 5 years August 31, 2018

Pomalyst (pomalidomide): "Ten years after a dual stem cell transplant & aggressive CHEMO, the MULTIPLE MYELOMA returned. After taking REVLIMIDE for six months, it did not help, I began taking 4MG of POMALYST. Over two years later, my blood tests improved. The only side effect is slight "TINGLING" in my toes & finger tips."

Paul Chan · Taken for 5 to 10 years March 15, 2017

Pomalyst (pomalidomide): "My father has been living with multiple myeloma since 2007. He was first prescribed with Revlimid for the first 2 years. The medication made him achy and cranky and he had a relapse after the first year. He switched doctor and was immediately put on Pomalyst. He has been taking Polmalyst ever since and is still in remission. He still feels soreness and weakness but he never feels any pain while taking Pomalyst."
