What can she do to not get the headaches??
Hi, I have been administering Hizentra now for 3months my headaches are less painful than when I was on Vivaglobin however I find a pot of mint tea half before and the other during helps me however my headaches now can be quite intense without any pattern or warning sometimes - co-codamol before bedtime works every time.
I have been using Hizentra for 2 years now. I take benadryl before I start my weekly infusion. It helps reduce the side effects, particularly the headaches. When I do get headaches, they are far less severe. Ask your doctor before you take benadryl though. It could interact with other meds you take. I also drink hot tea during my infusion. The caffeine helps with the headaches.
