Different Brands of IVIg

Yes different brands can have different reactions. My first two infusions were with Flebogamma, and they were fine. My next infusion they used a different brand, and I had a relapse; not serious but noticeable. I then had two double size infusions of Flebgamma and shortened the time between infusion from four weeks to three for three sessions. I’m now back to infusion once every four weeks to three and am doing fine. To make sure, I always call the hospital pharmacy three days b/4 my scheduled infusion to make sure thay have my brand set aside for me, and I check the bottle b/4 anyone begins treatment.
