Rituxan... scared

Hello to everyone!

I posted month ago about new drug Simponi asking if anyone been on this drug but this week I go for Rituxan 7 hr IV infusion.
After reading about side effects and many review from people who either been on it or in a process of taking, I am so scared. In my family a member with Leukemia was on same treatment and his whole body was covered in huge blisters and he itched so bad for 7 month nobody could help him here until his brother sent him great anti itch cream from Germany

I wonder if you or you may know of someone who used this drug can share with me the experience, good or bad.
I am very strong person who besides fighting chronic pain from 2 failed spinal fusions, also fights Lupus, RA and MS. But for some reason this particular drug makes me feel very unsafe, I guess its due to severe and very real side effects and reviews I read Sometimes not too good to know too much, right

Thanks for any input and all the best to you all
