Re: nucala biologic injection - Asthma Community ...
Hi Coral, I started Nucala injections February 2021 and they have improved my asthma massively. Before I couldn’t laugh or walk a few minutes before becoming breathless and coughing. I get them delivered and kept in my fridge and inject myself every 28 days. No side effects. I hope you get positive benefits too.
Yes I did a research trial of the injection 6mths in total. My peak flow went from 150/170 to 200/220 . No longer on it and slowly reversing my peak flow downwards.😔
My views are exactly like Karate 109. The miracle drug for me insofar as asthma is concerned. Hope that helps
I started Nucala nearly a year ago, initially muscle weakness which they said would be the steroids I occasionally took over the years. stopped it for a while and the weakness went away. started it again a few weeks later and it was even worse. weakness in my legs which is still there. I have now stopped it. I think if it suits you it is worth taking. I wish it had suited me! good luck
Wow. I didn’t even know that could happen. I am right now in a chest infection and at the end of all my meds and it actually still hurts. But I don’t think it’s Covid. Do you cough up blood when you have a chest infection?
Hi coral12, Yes I'm on Nucala too. I've just done my 24th injection. It's so easy at home every 4 weeks and have them delivered.
For me, absolutely no side effects but I feel 100% better. Before July 2020 when I started my life was non stop steroids and antibiotics. Now I continue using my fostair inhaler as usual but that's all.
I have a 6 month consultation via a video call from the London hospital who treats me.
Good luck and hope it helps you too.
Thank you for reasurance .glad it worked for u .hope it works for me .have u ad any infections since of IV read
