Buy Rituxan Online is just one of Roche’s many cancer biologic success stories. The monoclonal antibody is used to treat many types of blood cancer including non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma and some leukaemias, as well as for other diseases such as rheumatoid arthritis and vasculitis. The antibody works by attaching to B cells that will cause the cell to die (apoptosis).

What Rituxan Is Used For:

  • Treatment of certain types of non-Hodgkin’s lymphoma.
  • Treatment of chronic lymphocytic leukemia (CLL).

How Rituxan Is Given:

  • As an infusion into a vein (intravenous, IV), over about 6 hours.  The time of the infusion may be shortened, depending on whether or not you have received Rituxan in the past, or how well you tolerate Rituxan.
  • Medications may be given just before the infusion to reduce the occurrence of infusion-related symptoms.
  • There is no pill form of Rituxan.
  • The amount of Rituxan you will receive depends on many other factors, including your height and weight, your general health or other health problems, and the type of cancer you have.

Side Effects:

Important things to remember about Rituxan side effects:

  • Most people do not experience all of the Rituxan side effects listed.
  • Rituxan side effects are often predictable in terms of their onset and duration.
  • Rituxan side effects are almost always reversible and will go away after treatment is complete.
  • There are many options to help minimize or prevent Rituxan side effects.
  • There is no relationship between the presence or severity of Rituxan side effects and the effectiveness of Rituxan.

Self-Care Tips:

  • Rituxan may cause temporary low blood pressure.  If you are taking medication to reduce your blood pressure, check with your doctor or nurse as to whether you should take it as usual or not before the infusion.
  • You may experience shortness of breath, feel flushed or dizzy during the infusion. You will most likely receive medication before the infusion, and you will be closely monitored during the infusion.
  • For flu-like symptoms, keep warm with blankets and drink plenty of liquids.  There are medications that can help reduce the discomfort caused by chills.
  • Drink 2 to 3 quarts of fluid for the first 48 hours after each infusion, unless you were told to restrict your fluid intake.
  • Rituxan infrequently causes nausea. But if you should experience nausea, take anti-nausea medications as prescribed by your doctor, and eat small, frequent meals. Sucking on lozenges and chewing gum may also help.
  • You may experience drowsiness or dizziness; avoid driving or engaging in tasks that require alertness until your response to the drug is known.
  • In general, drinking alcoholic beverages should be avoided.
  • Maintain good nutrition.
