Rituxan Infusion

Hi,

I just underwent my first Rituxan Infusion for Polymyositis. It's been almost 2 weeks and with my Prednisone levels being lowered by the week, my CK level is high, and throbbing pain in my back, hips, shoulders, and neck are uncomfortable.

If you have undergone Rituxan Infusion, how long does it take before you felt any improvement? Did you experience any adverse side effects?

Thanks,

NK
