Do not delay

Call your doc’s office today and ask about that reaction! It’s either the rate is being done too fast and/or you need some pre-medications. Read any brand of IVIG’s ‘prescribing information’ and it’ll say the same things…Yes it could be AM, but it could be that the rate was too fast [resulting in that or what are euphemistally called ‘flu-like symptoms’] or an allergic reaction…
for most tylenol and/or benedryl helps a lot. Few require additional pre-meds and I’m sure you can find out about the alternatives in prior posts around here.

Call the doc’s office…get it on record. Things will be adjusted accordingly…
Good luck!
