Tremor, liver function

May 9, 2007 at 11:31 am

I pulled the prescribing information from the web. Tremor is listed as a side effect of IVIG in general (not a specific brand). I thought more about it, and I can’t specifically recall having hand tremor before IVIG. I thought the tremor was symptom progression, but maybe it’s a side effect. When I’ve mentioned the tremor to my neuro, she didn’t react in any way, more like it was an expected occurance. Same for abnormal liver function. I’ve discovered that’s also common in IVIG users. My enzymes are only slightly elevated so the neuro is not concerned. But they collect blood and urine before every infusion so they can monitor the effects of IVIG on my system.
