There are occasional mild and self-limiting reactions to IVGG: Fever and muscle aches and pains, headache, nausea and vomiting, dizziness, tachycardia, These occur in less than 5% of all cases. Rarely, there is a severe allergic reaction (less than 0.1%). This can be handled at the time of the reaction with IM or IV epinephrin.
