      @CamCam I had to go in for infusions too. They gave me Rituxan through an IV and I had to sit there for about 6 hours. It worked really well for my rheumatoid arthritis, but I was concerned about side effects so stopped getting them. Luckily my arthritis seems to be in remission.

      Methotrexate is technically a chemo drug, but it's used in much lower doses for RA and isn't considered chemotherapy at that level.

        @craftycoffee so the way it was done for her she had to go to a center and sit there for hours it was in a IV bag. She was sick and out of it for a couple days.
