angelast, I suppose your doctor doesn’t have a long term treatment plan yet, because it seems you are still experimenting with treatments. It is in the nature of CIDP that there is no one treatment which is best for all. When I received IvIg I don’t recall receiving anything with it and I had no side effects. However, I had no primary effects, either, except perhaps a temporary slowdown in the progression. We gave up on IvIg and did everything else, including prednisone. I had no adverse reaction to the prednisone, either, but the dosage was tapered down to zero in about a year. I’m glad to be off it.

Whatever your doctor arrives at that works best for you is the way to go.
