    I was originally prescribed Rituxan for Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma and it put my RA into remission as well as my cancer. I call it my miracle drug because my RA is very well controlled and I am able to do most anything I set my mind to. I would highly recommend this drug.

    I had two injections. Probably will not continue. I have burning in my eyes, sore throat with fungus infection, constant flushing with red face. I am very tired. Overall not feeling well. Will talk to my rheumatologist about above, but I do not want to go through this again. If anyone else is going through same, let me know by writing your review.
