Anyone Have Ruxience (rituximab) Infusion?

Anyone Have Ruxience (rituximab) Infusion?

My Dr wants me to have a Ruxience infusion.
2020 started a lot of aching joints and stiffness. Anyone have the infusion? Did it help?

Hi, I have been on Rituximab (Ruxience) for a few years now after other treatments failed, personally for me I am finding this very beneficial I am even being reduced on my Steroids which is a good sign. Whatever treatment your consultants want you to go on is a gamble & a worry but isn't that what life is all about you just have faith & trust that eventually you will get the right treatment to help you along lifes path. Good Luck Honey.xx

Hi @A myRAteam Member, I've had 3 Rituxan infusions. My most recent was yesterday. As of right now, it hasn't helped at all. But my rheumy wants to give it one more try. So I have a 4th infusion scheduled. This is my last hope. According to him, there are no more drugs, at this time, we can try. But new drugs are always coming along. My feelings are if it doesn't work next time. I'm stopping it. Why put that poison in my body if it doesn't help? Good luck! I hope this is your drug and it works for you.๐Ÿค—

I tried rituximab (Rituxan). It did not work for me, but may work for you. It's an individual thing. You just need to keep trying till you find the right one. A frustrating process, but that's the way it is for all of us. Good luck.

I'm on Metatrexate sulphur something and cimzia. It was 2 shots for the first two weeks and now monthly. It seems to be working. Pain seems to be subsiding. Hope it works for you ๐Ÿ™‚
