I am new to this forum...suffering with hives for the last 2 years and been on all the antihistimines and prednisone to alleviate the problem. Also have had 6 or 7 Xolair shots and still having hives but they are just not as large or debilitating. No cured as yet.
Diagnosed with Hashimotos and trying to get the thyroid to regulate but no luck so far.
Between the allergist, endocrinologist, rheumatologist and the family physician....it is getting pretty crazy. They each have their drug of choice - Xolair and prednisone from the allergist (with generous helpings of ceterizine as needed). The endocrinologist is still tweaking Levothyroxine to see where my thyroid needs to be. The rheumatologist is prescribing Plaquenil and the family physician is trying to ride the wave.
My question for the group (bless you all for sharing) is..
After taking Xolair for 6 months- what are your results? Most posts are only after 2 or 3 months. I would like to hear from someone that has had Xolair for a longer period and how effective they think it is.
