Reply To: Rituximab
I have been on IVIG since 2009 for CIDP. I was diagnosed with small cell lymphoma in 85% of the bone marrow. The oncologist prescribed Rituxan once aweek for 4 weeks. They now have it set up for me to receive 4 treatments every 6 months. I had a problem a few months ago with the billing for the IVIG treatments. My doctor said I had improved since being on Rituxan and wanted to stop the IVIG treatments for the time being and if I started going downhill then he would start IVIG back again. My last treatment was at the end of December and I have not noticed any difference. I have not had any side effects from the Rituxan except occasionally Benedryl legs.
