What would you recommend for a patient on Ocrevus and trying to conceive? I read that Rituxan is not associated with birth defects. I am on folic acid supplementation. Thanks!
While we have no data on this, the drug itself leaves a human after 6-8 weeks so some feel it is ok to get pregnant 8 weeks past last dose.
