im getting 100g of ivig every two weeks. this is barely enough to keep my cidp manageable. on weeks where there is a long weekend holiday and my treatment is delayed one day i get considerably weaker. are there any people on here getting larger doses that this ?

As others have said, everyone is different. You could go as high as 5mg/kg of body weight. I receive 4mg/kg every three weeks and have been told by my Neurologist that I could go as far out as four weeks. I am also on prednisone and am tapering down in hopes of eventually stopping it all together. I am now on 5mg per day and have be on as much as 100mg. per day. I was diagnosed in 1984 at age 50. The life of the Immune globulin depends on the brand you receive. Also the brand factors into how quickly it may be in infused.
