Just finished my First set of Rituximab infusions. Not as bad as I expected. YEA!

I had such anxiety over this new drug Rituximab. I wrote a few weeks ago asking you all for advice and asked for others experience. It was very helpful.

I just want to say thanks for the input and advice given. All has gone very smoothly. I feel fine except for the increase of cortisone which comes with the infusions... I can't wait to get off cortisone!

Anyway... just a quick note to say it is going very well so far and thanks to all who chimed in for the advice.

That is good news


umamel just wanted to let you know Ive just finished my 2nd set of Rituximab infusions and after 20 years of taking 5mg of prednisalone every day I have finally managed to come of them, I feel fantastic, this is definitely the drug for me, I have energy for the first time in years and the cloudy fog that is normally in my head is gone and I am beginning to feel like my old self :)

I wish you luck with your treatment and hope you gain some relief from it.


That is such cool news. Thanks for letting me know how well it is working for you! I hope to get down on Prednisalone as well... currently in 12.5. So tired of it. I hope this is the ticket for me as well. So far i have not heard anyone complain about this drug... have you?

thanks again for letting me know.
