IVIG Treatment

 

Ig therapy is radically changing the healthcare industry by empowering patients to quickly reduce inflammation in their bodies and experience relief from symptoms associated with their health condition. This specialty medication has many uses, making it a go-to therapy for physicians worldwide. It is the preferred treatment for patients with antibody deficiencies, low red-blood-cell counts, and more.

 

There are many IVIg treatments available on the market today, including Panzyga, Gammagard, Gamunex-C, Octagam, Privigen, Asceniv, and Bivigam. Most people tolerate IVIg therapy well, with minor side effects following the treatment. Although IVIg is considered safe, it is essential to understand the benefits and risks of each brand. Certain products may be safer for a particular patient, so it is always recommended that individuals discuss any prior existing conditions with their pharmacist or physician before using them.
