Reply To: Not sure if IVIg is working

There should be no problem switching back and forth between PE and IVIG. I did this myself more than once. The only downside is that the effects of IVIG to supress the auto-immune responses will be negated with PE. But it may be more important to remove most of the bad anti-bodies BEFORE going back on IVIG. Please run all this by your doctors, but I think it could give your husband’s disease the ‘kick in the pants’ you mention.
