My first Rituximab is scheduled for 8th August. In clinic my consultant was busy so did not have time to ask questions and GP cannot answer either as she has no experience of it. Could anyone with experience tell me: on the day of the infusion should I take usual meds (Pred, Azathiorpine, BP tablet); do I take them between 1st and 2nd infusion. Does Rituximab mean I can come off Pred and Azathioprine completely. I live alone and do not have anyone to collect or stay with me - will this matter? I see many people feel sick for a few days, but would they be well enough to go out for milk, bread etc? Am so grateful for any advice anyone can give.
