My pulomanry doctor believes i have eosinophilic asthma and he recommend xolair injections. I am on a good number of medicine
Singular, Albuterol inhailer, symbicort, levialbuterol nebulizer solution, pulmicort nebulizer solution, trelegy, i am prone to bad chest colds that evolve into bronchitis, i am on Prednisone more than 4 times a year and antibiotics.
Doctor says xolair injections will help and im open to see if it will help. The concern i have is the side effect of getting anaphylaxis episode. It says its common and can happen. I don't need to get worse and im very nervous about taking this medicine considering the side effects.
Has anyone taken this medication? Have you experienced anaphylaxis? Or am i worrying too much? How does it make you feel?

I was on Nucala for a yr. Not only did I not improve but I got the side effect of shingles.

@Nofroyo my story is very similar to yours. I did try it and it helped, however I had a reaction. My muscles started hurting, I was dizzy and shaking. Not only that but I still have a redish mark at the injection sites.

I hear xolair causes cancer.

I was on Nacala for over a year with no improvement. I had no side effects other than nausea, headaches and sleepiness for the following 12-24 hrs. I am currently on Fasenra for the past 5 months and there seems to be a slight reduction in hospitalizations. I have had no serious side effects associated with either of those injections
