My son, who has xolair injections twice a month, one per arm each time, reports that he has fatigue and joint pain, but the Xolair has helped his immune system function. Without Xolair, HEPA filters, Singulair, Foradil, and nebulizer treatments of Xopenex, he is housebound because going out precipitates severe asthma attack. He is 14 and his immune system will not allow him to attend public school. However, since the Xolair and other medications, he has at least been able to go over to friends houses and to function. So, for him, the medication is worth the cost.
