I currently receive Rituxan infusions and have been for over 2 years. Helped me tremendously once all the pills stopped working. I did have an allergic reaction (throat & tongue swelling up) during one of the first infusions so now they must start me off slowly and give oral as well as intravenous Benadryl to counter the reaction. No terrible side effects I can think of. I just had an infusion about a month ago but just this week found myself in a pretty bad flare, which hasn't been the norm for me. Ended up in the ER this past Monday with terrible Pleuritic pain and hardly able to walk by Thursday because my entire body aches so badly, so off the to Rheumy I go this coming Tuesday. Not sure if this means the Rituxan is no longer working for me but I'm looking forward to getting my Rheumy's thoughts on how to proceed. This is probably one of the worse flares I have had since starting the Rituxan. Hope that helps with your "R" question :)
