... I'm getting it from?
The cost of Vivaglobin and supplies has probably gone up because the manufacturer is phasing it out to be replaced by Hizentra. I switched to Hizentra in March because my supplier could not get Vivaglobin. The manufacturer will stop making Vivaglobin the end of 2011, so you might want to talk to your doctor about switching to Hizentra. It is the same thing (Sub-Q) just a little more concentrated and does not have to be refrigerated. Since it is more concentrated, you might have fewer infusion sites -- which is a plus. You can go to the CSL Behring website to get more info on Hizentra. The cost is comparable to Vivaglobin.
