Reply To: IVIG frequency ?

I’ve been getting IVIG 25 gms for the past 1 1/2 years every 10 days. Does IVIG ever lose it’s effectivenss or is there any point in time where you body needs more? I get the 0.4 gms/kg dose. How is the 2g/kg come about? I”ve never heard of the dose amount. I think my doctor doesn’t want to increase my dose because it may spill into my kidneys. I am doing okay on my 25 gm dose; but I don’t feel as good as I did before. I still has the fatigue and the electric shocks. Is IVIG suppose to help w/ these issues? Isnt the myelin suppose to be regenerating and I shouldn’t have these problems?
