Advice & Tips: I am on a very aggressive treatment plan and I feel that the IVIG is a big part of the reason that I am in as good of shape as I am. I have been diagnosed for over 14 years, 47 years old and feel pretty good. I can tell when my treatment time comes around because the fatigue becomes much worse. I say that the IVIG "recharges my batter". I actually go every third week.
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: Elevated blood pressure, Headaches
