I don't know how they decide what your dose should be if they don't weigh you. You should be getting 5 mg per kg of your body weight. So if you weigh 120 lbs you should be getting approx 275 mg of the med at each infusion. They could be giving you too little. Please find another place for your infusions. This place sounds like a quackery
I had slight response after my loading doses, but not really as much as I should have had. Doc doubled my dose to 10 mg and it's been 3 weeks now since I had that increased infusion. I see a huge difference. Not in remission yet, but getting close I think. Don't give up on Remi (just find another place to get it)
I don't know either. I haven't really been told much. But I believe the pharmacy sends 3 100 mg vials for each infusion, so I guess I'm getting 300 mg? I weigh about
137-140 right now. I think I will call another place. Thank you for the info. and your support. I'm glad you're seeing a huge difference. I hope you get into remission soon!
