Reply To: IVIG reaction, allergy?

What was your flow rate? Sometime it will help to slow your infusion down. I met a parent who has a child with immune deficiency. Her son get IVIG once a month & his infusion is run over a 24 hour period because of his reactions. Once they slowed it way down he responds much better. I’m not saying you will need a 24 hour infusion – but slowing it down may help some.

Also, did you drink a lot of water? Staying hydrated helps tremendously.
