Title: Rituximab
Post by: Aaisha.Dar on December 20, 2019, 01:12:28 PM
I got an infusion today for belatacept. Went well. I knew I was going for an infusion the next day for rituximab and the doctor told me it would be a 1 hour session. The nurse randomly informed me the infusion is actually 4 hours??! They said I have to have benadryl and tylenol ahead of time. Anyone get this medication before? My body is extremely sensitive and I really hope i dont get any type of reaction.
