This week has been a struggle for me. I am recovering from side effects suffered from way too fast drip of the IVIG. I ahve gone in the past year from 6.5 hours in that recliner per day to 4 hrs. and this week 2 hrs and 45 minutes. I don't know what to think. I'm waiting for a communication from my Neurologist on Monday. Too fast of a drip can blow your veins not to mention a heart attack and allergic reaction. the nurses told me that the FDA has ordered the pharmacist to raise the percentage from 5 to 10% concentration of the IVIG which means more med lwess liquid and smaller bottles and less time. Oh my aching head. And yes I had extra water and fluids.

    So very sorry they are doing this to nice people like us. They are cutting too many corners instead of getting to the bottom of important issues like safety in the Drug companies need to have more money in their pockets. Oh it makes me mad.

I hope you are doing better now DEBS, I hope you contact your Neurologist and ask why they did this to you.. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
