    Default Retuxin infusion

    Has anyone ever gotten sick after getting Retuxin?

    No. For the first few my legs would ache a bit. But when I received the most recent one I was just fine. Other than not sleeping the night of infusion because of high dose steroids, I was OK.
    Did you have yours and get sick?
    How is everything else going?
    I am scheduled for my Rituxin infusion in a few weeks. It is at a new location and I hope all goes well.

    Like Masha, I canít sleep right after the infusion. The next day Iím fine. In a few weeks, I it kicks in and keeps the symptoms away.

    My rituximab infusions have all been non-events. Iím restless the night of the infusion and a little tired the next day, but that has never interfered with anything I wanted to do.

    I have received 3 rounds of infusions (rounds are 2 visits each) but I normally dont feel too sick. When you say sick I'm thinking you mean nauseous or upset stomach and I did not have this. My legs tended to feel "heavy" and I felt a little slow like sleepy. If I get an early morning infusion I'm fine by the next day. If I have an afternoon/evening infusion (I've sat there for 6 hours for the first dose, the second visit is shorter) I'll normally take the next day off work, but feel fine by mid day.

    I sometimes have nausea after rtx. Also having diarrhea for the 10-14 after the IV (but I also have collagenous colitis). Sometimes I also get UTI after rtx. Also feeling sore all over, like after a car accident plus fatigue. It takes about a month to feel decent again.

    I have not had much after effect from rituxan until this last round which was done at 5 months which caused diarrhea.

    If they run mine too fast we found I get extremely itchy and a bit of soreness the next day, along with an inability to sleep that night. The sleeplessness might be due to other stuff in the mix when doing the infusion.
