Reply To: IVIG reaction, allergy?

I have twice had “big” reactions to IVIG.  Once rushed to ICU and once kept overnight.  I was referred to an Allergist.  He said it was not a big deal and this is what he prescribed:  Flow rate not to exceed 50 ml per hour.  Pre-medicate two hours in advance with 20 mg loratridine, 150 mg zantac, 10 mg singulair and at time of infusion start with IV hydracortisone.   So far no side effects at all.
