I was diagnosed at the end of June with CIDP and have 4 rounds of IVIG (Gammagard). Some have had better luck with different brands of IVIG. I have an IgA difficiency so I do not have much of a choice.  One of the rounds seemed to work early on but my neuro said my legs are getting weaker now so he just started me on 60mg/day of Prednisone last week. It seems to be helping with no side effects but it has been less than a week. I have to wait to see if we are going to continue IVIG in addition to the Predinsone.
