cathebt ,      yes i tried  the ivig weekly as you asked above.  my ivig regiman was:  loading dose (2gm per kg) every 12 weeks for about a year and a half.  no improvement. loading dose again every 6 weeks , still no improvement..

I went to Mayo in Mn to see Dr Dyck. he set my ivig up similar to what you mention above. I went 2 days per week for 4 weeks then 1 day per week for 12 weeks.  Still no improvement.    hopefully you will have better luck with it—it has worked for a lot of people.

Dr Dyck felt the weekly schedule of less ivig kept it at a more stabile level in the body than the less frequent infusions of more ivig.
