My rheumy is about to start me on rituxan due to none of the other meds we have tried not working. Was wondering if anyone can tell me about their experience with it and help me understand what I can possibly expect especially as far as side effects go. I have an 8 year old and 9 month old and am really nervous about this treatment. Thank you.

Hi littlekim91607,

Have you started on the Rituxan? How are you doing? I don't have any experience with this medication, but you may be interested in reading these reviews from the WebMD Drugs and Medications Center.

Best wishes,
Atti
