@A MyMSTeam Member did you have a choice with the benadryl shot? Do you receive a solu-medrol drip b4 the rituxan? From what I have read, seems like you get a "cocktail" consisting of benadryl and solu-medrol b4 rituxan to ease you thru the potential infusion reactions. I've looked into this drug as well as Ocrevus (MS version of rituxan) and was surprised that you got these two drugs along with the infusion for these two drugs. Is this the case with your rituxan infusion? I have extreme side effects from benadryl and solu-medrol, which may make this a deal breaker for me.
