I am due to start the iv treatment Rituximab, as the other steroid sparing drugs have not stopped the lupus from killing off my white cells, and I am not coping well with the steroids themselves. I was given a leaflet which detailed a few side affects, but when I looked into it more online, there are reports of deaths and severe reactions etc, and now I am petrified. Is there anyone else on this at the moment? My Rheumatologist didnt tell me it could cause serious problems, so I have agreed to go ahead but now I am really worried.
