Higher dose over less time

Sue is right about taking Benydryl. I also take two Tylenol. Don’t have problem with headache. Infusion rate is usually based on your weight with heavy person being infused at a higher rate. Also a 10% concentate of IVIG can be infused at a higher rate than a 5% concentrate. I have been infused at 185ml max for 5% and 325ml max for 10%. I also weigh approximately 200 lbs which these rates are based on. My nurse has me weigh in every time I come in for an infusion and then has a formula to calculate the rate of infusion.
