Hi. The dose sounds scary but it is fine. I have received such doses IV before various treatments like IGG and rituxin. It keeps you from having a reaction from some other med. your doctor will explain how the immune suppression helps you with whatever is ailing you... it may be used if you are having some major illness as it will,work fast. Then they would,follow up with prednisone probaly. Perhaps your nurse or the doctor can help you.
