in search for a dr and ivig questions

As I understand it the effects of IVIG only stay in the body for 3-4 weeks. So if that is your treatment of choice expect to be on it for intervals if your symptoms continue. My husbands Dr. is trying to “kick” the CIDP into a remission state by giving him Rituxan. Cellcept didn’t work for him.but I heard it has worked for many. 🙂 If I can be of any help feel free to contact me….we live in Maryland. Have you checked in the Atlanta area ?
Good luck to you.
