I have been ddoing this for about 8 months now and while I thought it helped in the beginning (I was probably just hopping) I do not feel any reduction in pain. There is a lot of risks associated with this therapy it's a use at your own risk treatment.

I was infused with this product 3 weeks ago. I experienced complete confusion, loss of short term memory, kidney pain, high blood sugars, high blood pressure, bad deep cough, leg, suicidal, hand and arm problems as if I had not been treated before. I did not find out about the change to this drug until 3 weeks after the infusion. My neurologist and his nurse practioner caused this problem by giving generic orders to the hospital to treat with IVIG therapy, even though I had reacted poorly to other manufacturers. I am a diabetic and easily tolerate gammar/p and octagamm. Read More Read Less
