Has anyone out there been on Rituxan and had positive results from it?

I am going to be starting on the medication Rituxan in the next week. I have never been on an infusion medication before for my RA. I have been doing research on this medication but am feeling anxious and apprehensive about it. Has anyone out there been on Rituxan and had positive results from it? What about side effects? Would greatly appreciate any information you could give me.

    Hi Twila. On top of the great article from Lauren (it is what I first thought of for a response, right down to noting that you needed to get the update at the end), I thought you might be interested in this article from our editorial team on Rituxan, including a link to an additional piece on side-effects: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/treatment/rituxan-reviews-how-well-does-it-work/. Some of the information may be redundant considering your research, but information is power. Best, Richard (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team)
