Then later it use to be like once a year that was considered usual but since i turned 26 it was 2-3 times a year. At 30 it became so worse that i was given prednisone every month for 10 days approx. This continued till 2 years and since i turned 33 i can hardly live without prednisone. Inhalers, anti-biotics, anti-histamines nothing works. Only nebulizer is a relief for few hours. Numerous times ive been taken to the ER but they have no solution as such. Please advice about Xolair coz i dont want to live in such a difficult life where i cant do anything. Thanks
Have you tried changing your diet? I found that giving a naturopathy approach may help. Xolair didn't help me. I discontinued shots after 2 visits
I do know that the change in weather is making people's allergies worst. Try repairing your lymphatic system. Go on youtube. Doctors n pharmaceutical companies will rarely tell you this. They only can tell you wat they know. DRUGS
I am a severe disabled asthmatic! I feel your pain. I was on xolair for a year staying in 2004-2005 after the birth of my first son. It does help some people who have allergic asthma. Mine, however, are triggered from multiple things. (Exercise, sprays, t cells in my lungs, emotions, sinuses, etc) I had sinus surgery and I even moved states to see if that helped, which it did for a while then began going right back in severity. One thing I found was a history of uncontrollable asthma in my family going back many generations. I also found out that aspirin, nsaids, ibuprofen, Aleve, etc trigger attacks in most asthmatics. Plenty of water helps loosen congestion but I still use my nebulizer often. However, the more I use it, the more it seems I need to. Always on prednisone for 5 years destroyed my weight which caused back, knee and joint pain and took me years to figure out how to control the hormone changes it caused for a woman to lose the weight. I have tried everything imaginable from eliminating allergens from food to trying every known natural substance on earth to get rid of the pharmaceuticals. I did find that quecernin (probably misspelled it) from a health food store does wonders for my allergies. I chose to try xolair years ago because I was exhausted of all the meds and though it didn't really make a difference for me, it may for you. I know it is very expensive even with insurance but there are organizations that will help with specialized medicines. Good luck on your journey and know that there are many of us out here. I also would advise you to have a portable nebulizer, if you don't and request epipens. I almost died a few years ago and had I been alone, I would have. Also, I found advair and other long term inhalers didn't work as good as symbacort but I had to use all of them twice in the morning and twice at night. Currently, my meds are symbacort, albuterol saline (prefer it over duoneb), albuterol inhaler, singulair, zantac (heartburn is another trigger of asthma which ironically is caused by prednisone).
