You should not make demands of your Dr. Try to work with him or her. If at some point you lose confidence, you can change, but you should not do that lightly.

There is nothing wrong with scheduling a loading dose and then waiting to see how things develop. In my case, I received a five-day loading dose then was sent to rehab. I continued to decline, so went back to hospital and was given another five-day loading dose. I declined further and had no more IvIg after that.

A month wait to evaluate your condition seems rather long, but since it seems you are not in hospital, it may be ok in your case. You should track your strength by some objective means every day, and report to your neurologist if you are getting significantly weaker.
