WHEN TO RECEIVE YOUR NEXT COURSE

Rituxan® (rituximab) is typically given every 6 months, or based on your doctor's evaluation of your symptoms (but no sooner than every 4 months). Based on how you're feeling and your other medical conditions, you and your doctor can determine if and when you should start another course of treatment. So if you feel your symptoms starting to return, be open and honest about it with your doctor. It'll help you make a more informed decision, together.

STICKING TO YOUR RHEUMATOID ARTHRITIS (RA) TREATMENT PLAN

Whatever you and your doctor decide about how often you should be treated, it's important to follow that schedule.

A study showed that, of the people who saw improvement from their first course of Rituxan (plus methotrexate) and then went on to receive a second course, 54% saw an additional 6 months of improvement (as opposed to 45% of people who received methotrexate alone).
