      Same with my husband. He experienced itching, congestion and sinus pressure with the first dose. They give him 50mg Benadryl IV before infusion and he does very well.

      I was one of the few that had a rituxan reaction the first time I was infused. I was so scared to have to have it again....But it's a wonder drug and really does the job.... I would feel very bloated for a couple of days after....Believe me,I've had worse chemo....RCHOP and ESHAP.
