Has anyone taken this medication for the above issues? Exhausted all other treatments - antihistamines, leukotriene blockers, you name it. I also have allergy induced asthma.
Hi there, I am taking Xolair for angio- odema. It is currently only licenced for urticaria and asthma but if your rhinitis is an IgE mediated allergic reaction then xolair will work as it binds to your IgE and prevents it from causing an allergic reaction. You firstly need to find out whether your rhinitis is allergic in nature- total IgE testing and specific IgE testing will tell you this. If youre igE levels are normal is it unlikely that Xolair will work.
