Hi all, my mum is being offered rituximab for her brain inflammation, she has SLE and is on steroids along with mycophenelate. She also has vasculitis. She doesn't seem very different in terms of brain function, maybe a bit more confused now days but it's hard to say. I'm worried about whether she should take the new drug, it's not licensed for SLE yet. We havnt been given an alternative. I know she's fed up at the moment. Has anyone gone through having inflammation on the brain and/or taking rituximab. Thank you so much for your time.
