With MM, a response is an improvement in your myeloma numbers as a result of treatment. There are different levels of response. Response types generally differ by degree of myeloma cell and M protein reduction. Talk to your healthcare team about how response is determined.
Your doctor may repeat certain tests to make sure your results are accurate. If your MM has come back, you and your healthcare team will discuss available treatment options and decide on what’s best for you.
POMALYST with dexamethasone is intended to be used until your MM relapses or worsens. Your doctor may tell you to stop taking POMALYST if you develop certain serious side effects. Your doctor will also decide how long you should take POMALYST, so be sure to follow his or her instructions on treatment, schedule, and dose. Take POMALYST exactly as prescribed and follow all the instructions of the POMALYST REMS® program.
Your doctor must enroll you in the POMALYST Risk Evaluation and Mitigation Strategy (REMS) program before they can prescribe you POMALYST. Keep in mind, there are special requirements for both men and women. See the POMALYST REMS® page for more information.
Every month, you will need to take a survey to receive your prescription. To help you complete your survey, you can download and use the REMS Companion App.
You may experience side effects while taking POMALYST. Tell your healthcare team about any side effects you experience. Your doctor may adjust or delay your dose, which could help manage some side effects, so you can stay on treatment longer. Your doctor may tell you to stop taking POMALYST if you develop certain serious side effects. Learn more about side effects.
If you miss a dose of POMALYST and it has been less than 12 hours since your regular time, take it as soon as you remember. If it has been more than 12 hours, just skip your missed dose. Do not take 2 doses at the same time. If you take too much POMALYST, call your healthcare provider right away.
