What are the possible Carimune side effects, liver and heart possible problems, Carimune toxicity and allergic reactions, Immune Globulin Intravenous side effects.

IGIV is made from human plasma (part of the blood) and may contain infectious agents (e.g., viruses) that can cause disease. Although IGIV is screened, tested, and treated to reduce the possibility that it carries an infectious agent, it can still potentially transmit disease. Discuss with your doctor the risks and benefits of using IGIV.

Treatment with IGIV has been associated with the development of kidney problems, sometimes resulting in kidney failure and/or death. Notify your doctor immediately if you develop decreased urination, sudden weight gain, fluid retention or swelling, or shortness of breath. These may be signs of kidney problems.

Rare cases of aseptic meningitis syndrome (AMS) have been associated with the use of IGIV. Notify your doctor immediately if you experience severe headache, neck stiffness, drowsiness, fever, eye sensitivity to light, painful eye movements, and nausea or vomiting. These may be signs of AMS. Stopping treatment with IGIV has resulted in resolution of AMS without any lasting problems.

Notify your doctor immediately if you experience a rare but serious allergic reaction (difficulty breathing; closing of the throat; swelling of the lips, tongue, or face; or hives) to IGIV.

Other less serious side effects may also occur. Upon injection of the medication, some patients experience the following:

  • anxiety
  • flushing or sweating
  • stomach cramps
  • muscle or joint pain
  • dizziness
  • nausea or vomiting
  • fever or chills; or
  • pain, tenderness, or irritation at the injection site

Side effects other than those listed here may also occur. Talk to your doctor about any side effect that seems unusual or that is especially bothersome.
