      Has anyone else experienced hair loss from their IVIg? If so what brand are you on?

      I’m on Octagam and notice halfway through the time between my treatments, my hair falls out like crazy.

      Hair loss following IVIg is a very rare side affect. I’ve read that it can happen if the infusion rate is too fast. Some of those who experienced hair loss switched to SCIg because it apparently does not have that side affect.

      There was an earlier discussion about hair loss here:

      Thanks, Jim. I’ll check out the link.

      I’m on a pretty slow infusion rate. (Max rate 200.)
