New Medication Concerns

Postby ktodd97_ on Thu Feb 13, 2020 2:33 am

hello there
im due to start dupixent/Dupilumab injection medication for severe eczema within the next few weeks but i have major concerns
if anyone else has tried this medication can you answer my questions below:
1. how bad are the supposed conjunctivitis it can cause?
2. do you need regular blood tests with this medication? (i already had blood tests for my current medication and theres no point me going onto an injection if i have to have blood tests too)
3. is there any fatigue or tiredness after a shot?
4. is there any nausea with this medicine?

Sorry to hear of the side effects - no experience with Dupilumab but compiled some of its research over the past year below. I read that the conjunctivitis can be quite bad, a few instances had patients dropping out of the treatment due to the side effects. Ideally, should be seeing both the skin and eye doctors to monitor both conditions concurrently.. take care ... dupilumab/
