glad the ivig is working 🙂 the loading dose is usually done over 5 days, if you are younger,and in good health (other than the cidp) there are Dr’s who will do it over a shorter period, i get the loading dose in two days. When i first got ivig I premedicated with benedryl and tylenol. Now I just drink caffeine—-helps avoid a headache from the infusion.
hope your next infusion goes a little easier.
