Revlimid/lenalidomide cycle

Been asked by someone to make clear what the cycle is I'm on.

Its a 28 day cycle and it goes-

Days 1- 21 Lenalidomide and also Allopurinol
Days 1-4, 9-13 and17-20 - 40mgs of Dexamethasone ( Steroids) - so 20 tablets each morning
Days 21-28- a rest week

Then start the next cycle. Each cycle is the same except that I think I ease off on the Allopurinol after 6 weeks or so. The study means I'll also be monitored quite regularly for blodd/paraprotein etc changes.
