Reply To: IVIG brand switch problems?

Just switched from Carrimune to Privigen.  No real change.  Mild flu like symptoms from both.  I guess Carimune is off the market.

I have been getting the infusions at home with the nurse hooking me up, monitoring me for an hour then leaving.  I unhook myself and fedex the pump back to Hopkins.  When I switched to Privigen, the doctor had the nurse stay the whole time for the first two infusions just in case.
