A Caution

Hi Cheryl:
Jerimy mentioned taking Tylenol and Benadryl prior to your IVIG infusion. PLEASE discuss with your doctor any medications you want to take BEFORE you take them. I cannot stress this enough. Even though these are over-the-counter drugs, they can still cause side effects in some people. You should NEVER take any drug on the say so of a person who does not know you from a medical perspective!
