Hi
I've been taking rutuximab every 6 months for the last 2 years it's one of the few drugs i've tried that actually works!! Be prepared though that you may feel unwell or sick during the infusion and pretty iffy for a week or so afterwards (thats how it effects me anyway!) The only problem seems to be that it doesn't seem to keep working as well when you've been on it a while - I'm having to change to a different drug now as the effect isn't lasting for 6 months anymore.I hope this helps - good luck I hope it works for you
