Reply To: IVIG dosage

I have heard of people getting 50+ grams of IVIG in one sitting but it really depends on the person. If you are someone who does not respond well to IVIG or are sensitive to a higher infusion rate, a large dose at one time may not be for you.

I think it also depends on your schedule. You would need to find out how long the larger dose would take & then decide if doing that dose every 3 weeks fits into your schedule than the smaller dose every 2 weeks.

Of course the main thing is are you doing well on your current dose? You need to decide if it is worth it to you to change it.

For my daughter frequency was more important – you may be one of those people too. There are a lot of variables to consider here.
