Hi just joined group. I was diagnosed with RA during covid. Started on Hydroxychloroquin but didnt get on with it. Have been on methotrexate injections for a while now with occasional steroids for bad flare ups. Hospital now want to add in rituximab and just wondered if anyone had any experience of this? Thanks in advance.
