Hi Rituxan folks, I would LOVE to swich to this drug. I was on Tecfidera, and had bad skin reactions, it started up an old auoimmune disease that has been quiet many years called pemphigus. It's really a pain in the neck. I try to exercise in the pool a few times a week, but having open lesions from pemphigus is gross for me and others I'm sure. I wish I had a full body suit.
Anyway, miracle of miracle, Rituxan is now being prescribed for pemphigus! Unfortunately, it's going to be a dance with my insurance company anyway, as I got a VERY restricted medicare supplement as far as docs go.
Can you folks tell me how you went about getting prescribed this? right from the neuro?
