Reply To: need spome advice on this cidp rollercoaster ride??
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.
