So I've been having IVIg on and off for the last 8 months and while it works well for me it's really difficult to make the whole week off college and work fit (and I know it'll make keeping a career difficult). My rheumy has suggested Rituximab as an alternative so that she can also get me off the godforsaken steroids. She gave me all the information about it and sent me away to read it and decide, reassuring me that it is very well tolerated. I read it and was really put off by some of the side effects (PML, cytokine storm, reactivation of dormant viruses - especially since I've had autoimmune hepatitis before). I was just wondering if anyone could give credence to or reassurance against any of these to help me make the decision.
