Reply To: Six Weeks Off of IVIG – Hoping For Remission

To Goodney—Best of luck and God speed your recovery and remission!
I have been receiving IVIG for 2 years and 2 months now. Is it protocol to try to wean IVIG ‘s frequency? For example, you were getting it every other week. So, should it be weaned to every 3 weeks, then every month, then 6 weeks, and so forth. Maybe, different doctors have different IVIG scheduling protocols. Just wanted to know your doctor’s thinking. About a year ago, I tried every 2 weeks, but after 1 1/2 months, I relapsed. Should I try again?
