Does femara work better than clomid (clomiphene)?

No, similar success: In most studies comparing Clomid (clomiphene) and Femara the pregnancy rates are similar and neither has been found to be superior to the other. Femara for fertility is an "off-label" indication, meaning this drug was not designed for this purpose. There are pros and cons of both Clomid (clomiphene) and Femara and they have different side effect profiles. Talk to your doctor about what is best for you.

How long do the drugs for chemotherapy and rituxan (rituximab) stay in the system after you're finished?

Up to 3 months: Chemotherapy leaves the body very quickly, usually within 24 hours. Rituxan (rituximab) is a monoclonal antibody, which is a protein. It's half-life is one-week, meaning it takes 7 days for half the amount to be gone from your system, and another 7 days for half of the remaining amount to be gone, etc. Rituxan can still be measured in the blood up to 3 months after a dose!

The chemotherapy may leave the body quickly, but the side effects like numbness may last for a long time. Many patients really want to know when they will not feel lingering side effect. That depend on the time it takes for the body to heal.
