MIRACLE DRUG!
My daughter gets an IVIG about every 3 months and every time she gets one the recovery is awesome. she is able to do more things, has more energy, gets more strength back. And finally she is able to run, jump, walk better, be a normal 6 yr old now.

Was on IVIG for 5 days at staford Medical Center. It did help. I was lucky that I was diagnoed early, and fast. I never had to be ventalted I belive because of this treatment and that it was started on early onset.

not sure if its working...1 treatment every 2 weeks
When I first started IVIG almost three years ago, I had such a hard time with the treatment. I had uncontollable chills, shaking, nausea, back aches, and fatigue. In the past year, I have started a new product called Privigen (still IVIG) that is so much better. Other than the fatigue, everything else stopped during the treatment. I also have a concoction of Benadryl and Zophran that I get through IV right before the IVIG that helps alot. Overall, the treatment is well worth it. I still get infections but nearly as often and they do not last as long as they did before.
