whyPANDAS posted a topic in PANS / PANDAS (Lyme included)just started Rituximab for son, who has long history of tick borne illnesses. and PANDAS. He is 21. He has been severely agitated for a couple months since stopped antibiotics and IVIG. He is blown up by Prednisone. Mayo Clinic recommended this but seems not to acknowledge possibility that TBI may still be present. Son having breathing problems...wonder if it is Rituximab, Prednisone or may Babesia which has reared its head.when he is immune suppressed by Prednisone. Very upset and don't know where to turn. Dont know anyone whose child has had rituximab. Would appreciate any communication.
I know these medications are used to modulate the immune system. Our doctor has mentioned that my son may need one of these later on. What is the difference between them? Will either one of them upset a vocal tic? What symptoms do these medications tend to help the most?
