Xolair side effects

Hi my name is Mac and I'm new to this forum so please be gentle with me.

I have been treated for severe asthma for 2yrs now, (after referral), by one of the larger specialist units in the UK which I travel out of my area too. Needless to say in this time lots of medication has been tried and failed and I'm now being told I'm at level 4,as amongst other things high dose steroids seem to be the most effective treatment but as I've been on them 2yrs the added implications are now starting to outlay the benefits.

So I've been asked by my consultant to consider Xolair injections.

Please can anyone tell me the side effects with this medication so I can add those to my pro and con lists when trying to decide.

Many thanks
