Tell me about Retuxin

My doc wants to start me on Retuxin therapy - I have Mixed Connective Tissue Disorder, which may as well be Lupus for all the symptons I have and the meds I’m on - except that (thankfully) none of my organs have been effected (yet)
So - is anyone on this new miracle drug? Talk to me

Not on it, but it’s spelled “Rituxan” (Rituximab in the US or MabThera in the UK/Aus/NZ). We administer it in our center for Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma primarily. Patients say that the first infusion is the worst but it’s generally well-tolerated.

One of the support sites for your disease is the best place for this question. You’ll find a larger group of people that take a medicine used to treat your condition. They also will relate how it works for the treatment of your specific condition. Best wishes.
