Anyone here familiar with the Rituxan drug?
I just started it this year. Here's what I understand about it. It's been around a long time for people who have RA but is somewhat new to MS. It sounded a lot less scary than some of the other MS drugs out there. It is not FDA approved yet for MS so check w/your insurance to make sure you are covered. There is some risk of a reaction when infusion is given but I had no problems at all and have felt very well since I went on it. It is generally well tolerated. I'm about to get another round this week. I hope this helps you some.
It's an old chemo drug that attacks several autoimmune diseases. My neuro tells me it's probably the best DMD's of all, but not FDA approved for MS, so getting insurance coverage
I read up on this Rituxan. It sounds like a risky drug to put in the body. Scary.
