Hi all! How long does it take for rituxan to work and for you to feel better? I have Wegeners and have been dealing with flare ups in my ears and sinuses that are extremeley painful and excrutiating that last two years. I have been fluctuating with my prednisone doses (ranging from a high of 60mg) to deal with the pain and to bring down the inflammation from the flare up. I just had two rounds of Rituxan in September & October 2016, However, I am still getting flare ups in my ear/sinus. I was finally able to taper down from the prednisone (first time I am completely off prednisone and not on any dose in last 2 years!). However, my ear feels hot inside and slightly inflamed. How long does it take for the Rituxan to work? I haven't been able to be physically active for over a year and everytime I get my blood pumping and I sweat, I get another flare up and am in pain for days in my ear. Does anyone else have this problem also?
Wishing everyone well!
