Hello All
Had my first dose of a 4 week schedule of Rituximab and for 3 days I had Extreme pain from head to toe. Now 4 days out I'm weak and sore all over with headache. I'm afraid to continue with the next dose. Any feedback on your side effects and how you handled I would appreciate

At the moment I do ritux every 12 weeks for lymphoma and have those side effects for a couple of weeks after each one. I am finding that it gets a bit worse each time! Good luck!

I did Rituxan in 2011 and didn't have any issues with it.  I sailed through all 4 doses with flying colors.
Good luck to both of you!
