88 yr old mom diagnosed with itp 6 months ago she is on her 3rd round of rituxan . Has been on prednisone of varying dosed for 6 months. Platelet counts have responded, but drop within 1- 1.5 months after finainfusion.
Rituxin is different for different people. It did not have that effect on me with prednisone. It basically did not control my disease and we moved on to another med. my disease is different. I suggest you discuss this with the doctor. Immunosuppressant drugs are very specific.
