Default Cytoxan and Rituximab ???

hi everyone Jim here , as I've stated before I have multi focal motor Neuropathy. I've been on Gammagard for the past year with mixed results. I have my Nuro appointment this Thursday (2-25). Here's my question has anyone taken either of these drugs and if so what were the results ? Looking for other options in my long quest for recovery thank you.

I have Mixed Connective Tissue Disease and both Swbsiey and Motor peripheral neuropathy. I was in Gamnagars for a year and then changed to another brand only because my insurance mandated it. I don't remember which one I'm on now. My progress has been very slow but two recent additions have made a difference: rituxan (rituximab) and, most recently, low dose naltrexone. I still have pain, and the neuropathy is still progressing BUT with the addition if those two I am beginning to feel like a human again. For me, first the rituxan and then recently the low dose naltrexone are mJing a HUGE positive difference in my life.
