      Is your question about side effects to Rituximab?
      I haven't taken it but am on a Lymphoma Facebook Site and they say that the worst is the first time and it can be scary. BUT there are many side effects.....Look it up on search....

      I have been on Rituxin/Rituximab for about 4 yrs now. I take treatment every 3 weeks now instead of every 2 weeks. The first treatment is the hardest your chemo team will watch you very closely. If at any time during treatment you get chilled tell them right away and they will adjust your drip and warm you up. If you have any effects while getting your treatment tell your chemo team right away. The only side effects I have ever had is feeling like I was catching the flu...a little achy, sore and stuffy but it only lasted a couple of days. This is one of the easier treatments. Wishing you well.
