So, i was scheduled for my first Rituxan infusion on Friday. I read all the risk and side effects of the drug. I was really nervous about the infusion.
So the day comes and the prep me with everything. The nurse and the nurse practitioner were great. The inject me with Tylenol, Benadryl, Pepcid and Pred. So far so good. Then they inject the Rituxan. For the first 30 minutes i was ok until i started getting an itchy throat and ear. Unfortunately, i got an allergic reaction. 😕 Im so sad. Cause in the inside i really wanted this medicine to feel better and put my illness on remission.
Now im confused cause i want to continue the infusions but now im afraid of any allergic reations i may have after even if they pump me with 100 mg of benadryl. 😕😭
