6,649 males aged 51 (±5) who take Revlimid are studied.


Number of reports submitted per year:

Revlimid for a 51-year old man.

Information of the patient in this study:

  • Age: 51
  • Gender: male
  • Conditions: Tinnitus
  • Drugs taken:
    • Revlimid (lenalidomide)

eHealthMe real world results:

Comparison with this patient's adverse outcomes:

  • Tinnitus(a ringing in the ears): 12 (0.18% of males aged 51 (±5) who take the drug)

As an adverse outcome could be a symptom of a condition, additional studies are listed to help identify the cause: for example, regardless of which drug is taken, how many female HBP patients aged 50 (±5) have nausea

As an adverse outcome could be a side effect of a drug, additional studies are listed to help identify the cause: for example, how many female Aspirin users aged 50 (±5) have nausea
