My Rheumy is looking at putting me onto Rituximab as the Enbrel is no longer working as it should. Any experiences of being on this drug gratefully received please. I am going to the hospital on the 12th to see the biologics Nursing Sister for a discussion about it.
I gather it involves two infusions spread over 2 weeks at the hospital and then it should last for anything up to a year. (A friend has been on it and so far his infusions have lasted 3 years without having more but I gather that is unusual). My Rheumy thinks it should last (if it works for me) about 9 months but could be longer.
I have read the leaflets sent to me but really none the wiser which is why I am asking for more information.
Just realised this should really be a question rather than a post. Oh well, too late now!
