I would be interested in knowing your husband's asthma symptoms. I have asthma is that is not "typical" - no wheezing, coughing, etc. I have allergies but I have never brought up this medication to my doctor. Could you please give me some background to your experience with it? Thanks so much!
Sorry for the late reply........
My husbands asthma was more like the post above. He also was in the ER quite a bit, even though we too has a nebulizer at home. He ended up in ICU for more than a week with a status asthmaticus attack.....we almost lost him that time:(.
Because the only thing that could control his asthma before xolair
was prednisone, he now suffers from those long term effects. He suffers from bone loss, and in Sept. we almost lost him again to an infection in his spine due to the prednisone.....all this before age 55.
has been a miracle drug for my husband and I would highly recommend it to anyone with severe asthma! Our insurance covers all the cost except for our 3 month co-pay.
Good luck to all!
