    Re: Methotrexate without Prednisone

    Welcome
    I don't know the answer but I do know it is most common to start with prednisone. I think the question might be finding a balance of risk. Is it more dangerous to use the prednisone or...

    I did try Ivig many years ago before there was Rituxan. It helped. It is something that I may be doing again but there is no plan for that yet.

    Hi Anne,

    I forgot about NAC that you have mentioned before. The reviews online sound like it works for a variety of things. Guifenesin does not seem to help me much so I just ordered some NAC to...

    Re: 1000mg or 2000mg rtx ?

    I am in a similar position. Probably due to being one of the early users of Rituxan here in the US. This is going to be a problem for long term users. I am no longer able to take Rituxan because my...

    You have had WG for a year longer than I have. I think we probably have a lot in common from what you have shared so far. I have had allergies to many antibiotics and when I got my first Rituxan...
