      can you do IVIG and PE at the same time for CIDP or does the PE wash the IVIG out of your system?

      The latter. After doing a series of PE treatments, you can then do IvIg for maintenance.

      PE will wash out the IVIg. Best approach might be to have three PE treatments to remove the bad anti-bodies (found in Lymphocytes). Then start IVIg or SCIg to help stop your immune system from producing more bad anti-bodies.
