A lot of people don't get much relief until the 2nd or 3rd infusion. It's probably more of a coincidence than anything.

I have had 8 infusions and they are working was going about 20 x a day. But now about 5 x and sometimes I am a normal person!!! lol
It has changed alot of my symptoms so I am lucky It just sometimes seems to take a while, but yeah after 3 you do get a better picture.
