"I am 41 year old female, have been taking Vivaglobin for about 3 years now after immunoglobulin treatments weren't possible due to my veins couldn't take it anymore. I feel so much better since the treatments. I admit, I hate the idea of poking myself 3 times a week, but I can't rave about it enough. I went through most of my life a sick person, and thought I was a hypochondriac. I would hate to see if I couldn't take it anymore, I am so much more healthier. Thanks to all those donations of blood, in order to make this wonderful drug."
"Have been using this medicine for several years and it has made a great improvement in my quality of life. Much fewer infections since starting on Vivaglovin but I'm facing the probability of stopping the use due to the increased cost of the medicine through my insurance company. It went from a normal co-pay to a percentage and cannot afford over $1000 a month. But it works great."
"I was allergic to this drug Vivaglobin!!! I would get huge welts at my infusion sights. They would blister and then the skin would come off and become very angry! Even worse, I would get projectile vomiting the 3rd day after! It didn't matter if I ate or didn't, it felt like it was coming up from my toes! I was missing more work than being sick from all of the other infections!"
"Easy to use and keeps my son very healthy. The only side effect he has is redness and swelling at the infusion site, but that clears up within a few hours."
"So disappointed when they stopped making this product"
