No, quite the opposite. Turned my son’s life around.

I’m so pleased for him. Think I’m clutching at straws as to why I feel so unwell! 😞

How long have you been having Xolair? It took about 3 months to make a difference to my son. He’s been on them about 4 years now. Still gets wheezy but otherwise a vast improvement.

And you are not feeling better? Sorry to hear it if that’s the case. But follow your consultant’s advice. I do hope things improve for you. xx

I thought I was but had this shitty exacerbation. He thinks it’s a blip. Well we’ll see I guess. I trust my consultant 100% so I’m in his hands x

I had the injections part of a drugs trial they had no effect on me, but made my skin feel better

Sorry to hear you haven’t been well but try to hold onto the thought it’s a blip. My son has been on it 8 months and it worked almost immediately-and he really needed that as nothing else was working. He has done really well until the last couple of weeks when he got a cold and peak flow has gone down. I think I’m getting the cold now and can feel my breathing getting worse. Perhaps you have the same?! Good luck and good breathing!

Yes I’ve been on xolair a year hoping I might get off it soon, before xolair I was in hospital every few years this since I started xolair I have been admitted 3 times in 12 months all three asthma attacks needing resus. Had never been in resus previously. My attacks have reduced but the ones I do have are now much more serious and life threatening needing weeks of recovery
