With the first infusion, I saw results of less pain and stiffness within two weeks. I have gotten the second infusion and I feel better than I have in five years!! I have less pain and more mobility. The inflamation is almost gone. Unsure as to how long this improvement will last, but it is great so far!! Taking the Rituxan IV has been the best decision for me!!

I've had RA since I was 18 have tried all there is to try, but with rituxan I feel so much better. I'm just starting my 2nd infusion but can feel the difference, hope evrything works out and that this is "IT".

After the effectiveness of Enbrel started I tried Remicade with no luck. Rituxan has given me a new lease on life. I am able to do things I haven't done in years. 6 hours is a long time in a chair along with 2-3 days of fatigue, but it is worth every minute to feel good for 6 months.
