I am new to this forum and this is my first posting. I am 44 and have had lupus for about
8+ yrs now. My rheumatologist started me on Rituxan last August for the first time and it lasted for about
5 months before it wore off. I had a second Rituxan tx 1 month ago and haven't seen any response to it this time. I actually am having a lupus flare currently, joint pain, swelling,ha's low grade temps, fatigue etc. I have cns involvement, Migraines,Raynauds and Some neuropathy of my hands and feet and Depression. My rheumie decided to have me take cellcept again to see if that helps. Has anyone on this forum been treated with Rituxan and had poor response to it, just wondering if rituxan is a one time wonder drug. Please let me know your opinions or experiences that you have had.
thanks for your patience.
