How it Works

Immune globulin can be administered subcutaneously (SCIG) or intravenously (IVIG). In patients who have a decreased immune system, immune globulin (IG) can be used to provide the antibodies they need to ward off infection. In patients with autoimmune diseases, immune globulin can help regulate an overactive immune system by slowing it down or stopping processes causing inflammatory reactions.

Taking Immune Globulin Safely

It’s important to speak with your doctor before taking immune globulin. It’s possible the medication can contain inactive ingredients which can cause allergic reactions. Additionally, it’s important to go over your past medical history and current medications in detail with your doctor to make sure you are an eligible candidate.
