High viscosity in myeloma is usually due to the activity of the disease (the "bad" plasma cells produce large quantities of abnormal proteins); so the best bet to reducing that viscosity is by adhering to the drug plan for it. Dexamethasone (or prednisolone), melphalan, thalidomide are some of the commonly used myeloma-specific drugs.
Take care.
