Reply To: questionable diagnosis
I have been diagnosed with CIDP. I live most of the time in my vacation home in Central America. Insurance will not cover IVIG in the foreign county and paying for it out of pocket is out of our financial means. I was treated with one IVIG treatment in the USA of 123grams over 3 consecutive days. Pre-treated with Benedryl and Tylenol. They were NOT kidding about the headache. Headache aside, I can find very little on SCIg for CIDP treatment. This would be a great alternative to IVIG because of the easy delivery system. What I did find in my research is that it has less side effects and can be taken more often to keep the drug level in your system.
Does anyone have more information regarding SCIg?
