  1. Hi . Everyone's experience with a treatment may be different, but I can share with you this article from our contributor Lisa on her 11 years of experience with Rituxan: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/rituxan-rituximab-side-effects. Hopefully others will chime in with their experiences. Also hope that it proves effective for you. Please feel free, if you like, to keep us posted on how you are doing. Best, Richard (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team)

    1. thank you for the article and your support.




  2. I have used Rituxan for eight years. It is a terrific medication for suppressing RA. There are special considerations for the COVID-19 vaccine. Be sure to discuss it with your rheumatologist especially if you have not yet received the vaccine.
