thank you for your question
i do not know why your doctor asked you to stop taking BRILINTA with Rituxan which you take for your RA.
there is no interaction between the two
rituxan contains rituximab and Brilinta contains ticagrelor both of which can be used together and there are no known interactions between the two
HY WOULD HE SAY IV PUSH
actually the thing is that Rituxan is only given as an iv infusion and not IV push. The reason for this is that in the absence of infusion toxicity or the side effects of Rituxan increases
So I would not recommend Rituxan being given as IV push
IS THERE A DIFF BETWEEN PUSH AND INFUSION OVER TIME?
THANK U HV A GREAT DAY
You are most welcome
