Reply To: Week of IVIg treatments and a second opinion

I’m so glad you’re firing your orginal neuro! He really is an idiot and isn’t following established protocol.

I’m not sure I understand why patients are given steroids along with IVIG. What is that supposed to accomplish? I can’t find any mention of this practice in the books and medical journal articles I’ve read about treating CIDP. My neuro, and the doctors he practices with, never use steroids.
