    I was diagnosed with RA when I was sixteen, so almost 21 years ago. I have tried EVERYTHING. I have been on prednisone for over 6 years now. The Remicade helped a lot, but quit working after a few years. Rituxan is one of my last options. I have severe migraines usually, and it seems that they have intensified on the medication. I have had the two starting doses. Between the migraines and se ... Show Full Comment

    I've tried Humira, Remicade, Orenica...several with no relief. Had my second dose of the first treatment with Rituxan last week and already feel a big improvement! However, like a few of you, I had a reaction with my first dose and after waiting and then slowing the drip had a better go of it. Here's hoping this one works!!

    I am about to receive my third treatment of Rituxan. On my first, I did have a reaction within 30 minutes of starting the first IV. They stopped the IV and waited about an hour until the symptoms disappeared and slowed the drip and I was fine. Rituxan is working for me! I have tried just about every biologic and I thank God that Rituxan is working on me and I feel like I do not have RA anymore!

It has been 1 month since the 2 infusions and so far I have suffered from 2 bouts of horible mouth sores. Each listing about a week. It is so bad that I am unable to open my mouth wide enough to eat. I drink liquids thr ... Show Full Comment
