IVIG rate

Yes running it at 100 instead of 300 should make a hgue difference.

Some people have to go even slower.

I am glad your headache didn’t last as long.

My own experience in the US that’s worked for me is: 24 hour pre IVIG hydration, Tylenol and Benedral prior to infusion, infusion start @ 50 and increase by 25 every 15 minutes. I max out at 200. I’ve no headaches or flu symptoms. I began getting infusion every 3 weeks and now am up to every seven weeks. My improvement only began after my doctor added 80 mg/day of Prednisone which has now been reduced to 2.5 mg every other day. I’m very fortunate and know it.

my ivig rate is 450/hr. it takes an hour to get there, but I found that no matter how fast or slow I get it (I was at 200 when I first started) that I still get sick, so I would rather get it over with so I can get sick at home. One thing that has helped in the past two months is that I have come home and taken a nap right after my treatment. My headache hasn’t been near what it was. Unfortunately, the nausea and vomiting are there still. I still get a headache but the HUGE throb is gone.
