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.
Your doctor should give you medicines before your infusion of RITUXAN to reduce the risk of having a severe infusion-related reaction. Medications commonly used before RITUXAN infusions include antihistamines and acetaminophen.
Severe reactions typically occur during the first RITUXAN infusion. Taking the suggested medication before treatment may reduce the chance of having a severe infusion-related reaction. Be sure to talk to your doctor or nurse about the medication you should take before taking RITUXAN.
RITUXAN is available by prescription only.
