    Hi Kelly,
    I am sure your doctor knows best. How do you get sick? Vomiting? My first nurse for Rituxin infusions told me it was very important to eat a full, healthy meal beforehand. I continue to eat during infusions too. The prednisone can cause a great deal of nausea. Also, they told me to start drinking a lot of water three or four days prior.
    I have never had immunoglobulin treatments, so nothing to share on that topic.
    Where do you get your infusions?
    Wish I could help more.
