Michelle — I had terrible headaches when I was getting IVIG five days in a row. My neurologist said some people can’t tolerate that dosing schedule, and he switched me to one day a week for three weeks, then two doses (on NON-CONSECUTIVE days) in the fourth week of the four-week cycle. I haven’t had any headaches on this schedule. I don’t hit a “trough” at the end of the cycle because I have continuous treatment throughout the cycle. I do feel tired after each infusion, but that effect is gone by the following morning. Maybe a change of schedule would be worth discussing with your husband’s doctor.
