I have taken a Xolair injection monthly for about four years. I have not had to be hospitalized. I did have one attack that I couldn't get under control and had to go to the ER. I used to have most of full blown attacks during the day when I could get into my doctor's office. She would work with me for 3-4 hours or whatever it took. I took early retirement last summer and I think that has made a big change in those day time attacks. I was under a lot of stress there. An we all know that asthma is triggered by stress + I was working in an environmentally sick building.
I will still from time to time get bronchitis and have take that beloved drug Prednisone. And, I take other asthma and allergery medications.
Xolair is for moderately severe to severe patients.
