Rituximab - Dosage and How to Use

How should Rituximab be used?

  • Rituximab is given through a drip into a vein (intravenous infusion) in hospital by a specially trained nurse. The first infusion takes around six hours, although following infusions will be a bit shorter.
  • Before you are given rituximab you will be prescribed other medications to reduce possible side effects from the infusion such as pain and fever.
  • Usually two infusions are given two weeks apart.  

What should I do if I miss a dose?

​If you forget to take a dose, take it as soon as you remember. Then take your next dose at the usual time. Do not take two doses to make up for the missed dose. (or change to whatever is appropriate).

What should I do if I overdose?
