The RITUXAN Infusion Process
How you will receive RITUXAN® (rituximab)
- RITUXAN is given by infusion through a needle placed in a vein (intravenous infusion) in your arm. Talk to your doctor about how you will receive RITUXAN
- Your doctor may prescribe medicines before each infusion of RITUXAN to reduce side effects of infusions such as fever and chills
- Your doctor should do regular blood tests to check for side effects to RITUXAN
Before each RITUXAN treatment, your doctor or nurse will ask you questions about your general health. Tell your doctor or nurse about any new symptoms.
