Privigen (immune globulin intravenous) for Primary Immunodeficiency Syndrome: While I have only been on this medication, I feel so much better. I didn't become ill at all through the winter.

For Myasthenia Gravis: I have had Gammagard for 5 months and suffered flu like symptoms for at lest 2 days after infusions. I had Octagam yesterday and today and have no symptoms except feel very tired. It seemed to be less irritating to the veins also. The fluid amount was doubled so it put less stress on my kidneys.

Gamunex (immune globulin intravenous) for Chronic Inflammatory Demyelinating Polyradiculoneuropathy: After 5 months of infusions I feel better although CIDP symptoms persist. Side effects were mouth sores/swollen lips both with white blisters starting after three days resolving after two weeks. Significant coverage of chest and back rash, large red blotches. Start on the fifth day and resolve after forming black scabs after three weeks. Will continue with last treatment and then quit.

Gamunex (immune globulin intravenous) for Primary Immunodeficiency Syndrome: I've been on Gamunex since it was introduced. I take 60 grams every three weeks in about 2-1/2 hours. I have no side effects and pre-medicate with Allegra and Advil. It is by far the easiest tolerated of any of the IViG products. I've used IViG for over 30 years. Works for me.
