It’s correct that the loading dose is generally given over five days. This may be sufficient for some cases of GBS. In others, more IvIg might be administered. In my case, the initial loading dose seemed to arrest the progress of the weakness, but when it continued I was then given another five-day treatment. When that proved insufficient, I was reclassified as CIDP and given plasma exchange (PE).
