Have been on Xolair since last fall with excellent success. We were out of town in an area with high mold content. Since Xolair does not help with mold allergies, I started having asthma. Started a course of prednisone and of course was getting better. after 6 days on Prednisone I had my Xolair injection (Doc said it would be fine). Two days after Xolair injection my asthma got significantly worse, and am back up to 40 mg of prednisone. Has anyone taking Xolair had a similar situation. Replies greatly appreciated .

Welcome to the forum, KITZ.

Have you been to an allergist?

My allergist put me on shots for my pollen, mold, dust mites allergies. Several years later I needed to add grass. It sure beats taking prednisone!

The shots are small. I need 2 every week, but many people just get one every two weeks or even once a month once they build up their immunity.

I live out in the country in a damp area and do a lot of gardening and mowing. I'm happy not to have symptoms and not having to take more pills.

You are not alone. I hope you find something that works.

For my allergic asthma: Been on xolair for over 2 years, alongside allergy shots to desensitize to dust, pollens, and mold. Neither xolair nor shots seems to help much for the mold allergies, according to allergist and pulmonologist. Nonetheless I keep taking them & experiment with different mixes of other meds, also taking daily an antihistamine, singular, and inhalers. Have also changed dosing & frequency of xolair injections - did once every two weeks, then once a month, now back to every 2 wks. I think there are just going to be exacerbations (for me due to environmental triggers), and I just need to deal with them. Next step is to add prednisone if I really can't get it managed by these other drugs.

Wishing you well!
55 yrs old. UC >12 yrs after proctitus. For flares failed prednisone, cortenemas (too little too late), mesalamines (hives, fever), 6mp (fever), Uceris (no effect). 12/13: remicade stopped severe flare! 6/14: i stopped remicade due to debilitating joint pains & weakness. Dx: Anti-TNF Induced Lupus; polyneuropathy; recovered w/prednisone (40mg then very slow taper ~ 4 months). Next UC meds?
