Thalomid 50 Mg

Thalomid® (thalidomide) is a drug prescribed to treat a certain type of bone marrow cancer (multiple myeloma) or skin sores associated with leprosy. It comes in the form of a capsule and is usually taken once daily. The 50-mg Thalomid capsules are the lowest strength available for this particular drug. However, the medication is also available in three other strengths (100 mg, 150 mg, and 200 mg).
Regardless of which strength you are taking, the capsules should be taken with a full glass of water, at least one hour after a meal. These capsules should be swallowed whole; do not open, break, or chew them.
