Thanks KaEll! Did it helped? It was also given to you for your Nephritis? I read about Benlysta too, my Neph only mentioned Rituxan for the moment. I had weeks ago 3 infusions of methylprednisolone(250mg a day) and I felt so bad after. Thanks and hugs

I have taken Rituxan before. I felt it help tremendously however I could tell when it was time for the next infusion. It did make me feel fatigued for about 3 days afterwards. My dr. took me off it when Benlysta came along
