I'm Curious About Rituxin. Has Anyone Been On It?

I'm Curious About Rituxin. Has Anyone Been On It?

Can you tell me if it is an infusion or a weekly injection? Did it work for you?

A myRAteam Member said:

It is an infusion each one lasts 3-4 hours but the good side is its 6 months from the last one . They're 2 infusions done 2 weeks apart the another 2 done every 6 months thereafter

I'm sorry to hear that! I hope you can get them to listen to you. Keep track of your symptoms and explain in detail why you think it's not working. I'm sorry they are making you wait so long. That stinks. If you are flaring really bad, go back in and tell them you're in pain. Maybe they can at least give you a steroid shot to get you temporary relief. Hang in there and don't give up! I'm praying they will listen to you!

I was on Rituxan, it worked great the first time (after the first 2 infusions) but it only worked for about a month, then the next round of infusions didn't work at all. It was painless and no side effects for me

I have been on Rituxan since 2009. It has worked very well for me when nothing else has. I get two infusions spaced 2 weeks apart every 6 months. It takes 2-6 weeks after the infusion to take full effect. I have not had any side effects from this treatment, and it has given me back so much of my life.
