Once you start taking thalidomide, does it indicates that the myeloma is more serious?

In brief: No
Thalidomide is one of several drugs commonly used to treat myeloma.
The choice of its use is not related to the "seriousness" of the disease.

In brief: No
Thalidomide is one of the standard chemotherapy drugs used for myeloma.
Taking it just indicates the myeloma needs therapy but has nothing to do with disease being more or less serious.
