    Infusion 2 hours

    I see this was previously mentioned by Marco.

    What a happy surprise today! My infusion was only 2 hours. There were less side effects. No rash or itchiness. My BP still got a little low and we had to reposition my arm and the BP cuff to get it back to near normal.

    That's wonderful. I'm so happy that you tolerated the faster infusion times. It makes Ocrelizumab just "that" much better.

    I wish you well...


      Yes that’s great to hear.
      The five hour ones are painfully long.
      It was one agains't 2.5million toughest one we ever fought.


        Good to hear about your 2 hour infusion.

        My Feb infusion (second treatment) was down to 3.5 hours,
        but my most recent infusion in Nov was back to 5 hours since my BP was a little high.


          Two questions:

          1.Is the amount of drug the same? That is, do you get the full dose infused at a faster rate? Or, is it a half dose with the same effect?

          2. It has always taken a oath or so for my body to become acclimated to the drug. Is the time to absorb the drug decreased? Sorry, not the most articulate questions. But I hope my meaning is clear.
