I had Pfizer's shots. The second was 2 weeks before the first RITUXON. I had no reaction to either shots or the RITUXON.

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

Has Anyone Ever Taken Retuxan Infusions For RA?

Has Anyone Ever Taken Retuxan Infusions For RA?

I have a history of cancer many years ago. Thus, I can't take the typical biologic treatments for RA. My rheumy wants me to try Retuxan infusions as a last resort. She says it would be the least likely one to cause a cancer recurrence. I'm very reluctant to do this. Has anyone had these infusions or heard of using Retuxan for RA??

A myRAteam Member said:

I had first Rituxan treatment a month ago. So far, it has not started to work. I was told it will take about 50 days to start working. So far just more pain.

Rituxan

I have been on Rituxan for about 3 years now with great success. Suddenly and no real prior warning i feel Rituxan has stopped working. This is common in my RA treatment. Has anyone else experienced a waning effect of Rituxan? Is it possible i just have a bad batch? I have my infusion in September. It is seriously messing me up.

Has Anyone Had Infusion Treatment?

Has Anyone Had Infusion Treatment?

I’ve tried so many different medications and none of them have worked for me. My Dr. just prescribed me sulfasalazine to take along with my Humira and he said if those don’t work for me, I will have to have infusions every two months. That seems a little scary to me. Has anyone had those treatments before? Were they helpful and did you have any side effects?

A myRAteam Member said:

I’ve been on Rituxan infusions for probably 4 years, which last anywhere from 1 to 2 years. It has really helped.
