Hi. I haven’t posted for a while. I have been on Nucala for 1 year and three months. It has helped me but not completely. I have been having more asthma problems since I have increased my activities outside the house –
- spending time outside
- going on vacation which involved daily outdoor activities, restaurants, hotels etc.
- just trying to do activities like a “regular” person
Once I started having more asthma and allergy problems, I realized I had gotten in a pattern of going to work and coming home.
My vacation resulted in daily Prednisone and Albuterol inhaler/nebulizer treatments. Prior to starting Nucala, I was on Xoliar for several years and then it stopped working. My pulmonologist is now thinking about switching me to Dupixent.
I would like to hear from anyone who is taking Dupixent.
Has it helped you?
How soon after you started Dupixent did you show improvement?
What side effects have you had?
Have you had any difficulty giving yourself the injection?
How often do you give yourself the injection?
Thanks for any information you can give me.
