    I received a call yesterday from my infusion pharmacist advising they are switching me to a different brand of immunoglobulin for my February infusion.  This is further indication that the national shortage has not abated.  I’m just happy that the infusion provider is keeping me on schedule, regardless of brand.

    I’m so sorry to hear this, although I’m glad you’re still able to get your treatment! I did not realize the shortage was still ongoing as my infusion center told me they were not having a problem ordering IVIG anymore and I have been getting my treatment normally since September I believe.
