Rituxan (rituximab) is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with moderate to severe Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) with another prescription medicine called methotrexate.

One course of treatment includes 2 infusions given 2 weeks apart. 

Infusions generally take 4 to 6 hours. Rituxan is typically administered every 6 months, or based on your doctor’s evaluation of your symptoms. 

If your symptoms return before it’s time for your next course, you and your physician may decide to treat earlier (but no sooner than 4 months).
