Hi Scott and welcome,

I'm very uncomfortable providing dosage information to anybody, it's never advisable on a public platform to trust accuracy of dosage information!  

I'm sorry but whilst you may have a legitimate reason for wanting to know, the potential for misuse of this type of information and the high complication risks with Rituximab (Rituxan) could result in very serious consequences....

Rituximab (Rituxan) is a DMD that should 'only' be administered by a healthcare professional with appropriate medical support to manage severe infusion reactions that can be fatal if they occur, so i seriously recommend you discus dosage and any other information you may have about Rituximab (Rituxan) with your treating neurologist!

Cheers......JJ

Hi Scott.  When were you diagnosed and how are you doing?  Is there a reason you aren't sure of the proper dose as typically that is given information by the doctor or at very least, dispensing pharmacist.  Tell us more of what is going on.
