Revlumid

Were you looking for information about Revlimid? Revlumid is a common misspelling of Revlimid.
 
If you have a certain type of bone marrow disease, you may benefit from a medication called Revlimid® (lenalidomide). This drug is specifically approved for use in adults who have multiple myeloma or myelodysplastic syndrome (MDS). It is also approved to treat mantle cell lymphoma.
 
Revlimid works by altering the actions of the immune system, which can delay the growth of abnormal cells involved in multiple myeloma and MDS. However, this drug is not suitable for everyone; let your healthcare provider know if you have any medical issues (such as problems with your kidneys or liver), or if you are taking any other medications.
