Reveal the road ahead—establishing your treatment plan

GAMMAGARD LIQUID is administered as an intravenous (IV) infusion. That means it’s delivered into a vein. You and your doctor will talk about the plan for your care and decide what’s best for you. It’s also important to know that it’s not unusual for your plan to change as you continue treatment. This is because your doctor will make adjustments based on what’s right for you and your symptoms.

Think about how infusions will fit into your everyday routine

Infusion time will vary

The exact infusion time may take a few hours and will depend on the infusion rate, the dose being administered and patient tolerability. Ask your doctor how long it will take for you, so you can plan out your day.

Talk with your doctor

Remember, your doctor will only know how well your plan is working if you tell them. Want help discussing where you are now—and where you’d like to be? This doctor discussion guide can help.

Nick discusses his diagnosis and treatment

When I get my infusions, I like to play games on my smartphone. And sometimes, I like to catch up with the staff at the infusion center.

Individual experiences may vary.

In 2008, my doctor diagnosed me with possible MMN. At that point, he was unsure if I had that or a lower motor neuron disease. But in 2010, another doctor performed an EMG test and found a conduction block, which confirmed my diagnosis of multifocal motor neuropathy.

And in 2012, I started treatment on GAMMAGARD LIQUID. My doctor told me that GAMMAGARD LIQUID is an infusion given by a healthcare professional either at home with a nurse or at an infusion center. My doctor told me that GAMMAGARD LIQUID could help increase my strength and dexterity, which would help me with everyday activities.

He said I might experience some side effects, such as flu-like symptoms. After weighing the benefits and the risks, my doctor and I decided that GAMMAGARD LIQUID would be a good option for me.

I do my infusions at the infusion center, which is about 20 minutes from my house. When I go to get infusions, I like to play games on my smart phone. And sometimes I like to catch up with the staff at the infusion center.
