IVIG Reviews

Show: for
Just had first IVIG and it was pretty uneventful fatigue and headache.
It helped alot. It was really something to go from being so active to being pushed around in a wheel chair in such a short time. Then to learning to walk again.

I felt much better after having the IVIG treatments.
This treatment worked for me but I can no longer afford it and I make too much for assistance

After trying several different brands, I have found one that gives me minimal side effects. I receive IVIG two days every other week. It helps limit my hospitalizations, where I have to get plasmapheresis.
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.
