Questions about Rituximab

      Hi Everyone,

      I was hoping you guys can help me with some questions I have. After 15 years of IVIG for MMN/CIDP, I can not have it anymore due to kidney problems. My doctors are recommending Rituxan therapy as an alternative. Has anyone on here had it, and could you tell me what kind of side-effects you had? I am also scared because I know Rituxan can cause some very serious, if not fatal, brain infections. Any first hand info from someone that has had or is having it would really be appreciated! Thanks!
