If it's on your mind and it has to do with multiple sclerosis in any way, post it here.

Thinking about doing RITUXAN

Postby AlmostClever » Sun Jul 17, 2011 3:59 pm

My doctor suggested this last year but I wanted to pursue my vascular issues first. Now that I seem to be at the end of whatever can be done for me in that department, I am probably going to move forward with Rituxan.

My disability has been progressing rapidly over the last month and I feel like I need to do something soon.

Anyone have any experience with Rituxan?

Thanks!

Yeah, I know about the PML risk. I'm having a test to see if I have the JC(?) virus. I understand that the majority of the population has this virus but if I don't, at least I'll ffeel a little better about it.
