Reply To: IVIG Questions?????

Is the other drug cell cept or imuron? If so, usually those are used as a last defense. Standard protocol is usually ivig, or some docs do start w/prednisone. If ivig alone does not work they introduce prednisone. PP is next, cell cept and imuron are last. They have serious side affects. Of course if you have to use them because nothing else has worked, you have to. They are used to supress your immune system. Find out the name of the drug, and google it. You will learn so much that will help you make the decision that is right for you. Good luck to you, my thoughts are with you in this very scary beginning part of the journey. It will get better, I promise.
