Dupixent - Overview
Dupixent is a medication used for treating some people with atopic dermatitis (eczema) and as maintenance treatment for some people with asthma. People in need of a Dupixent prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Dupixent injections when appropriate to do so.
How Does Dupixent Work?
Dupixent contains the ingredient dupilumab and is produced by recombinant DNA technology. Belonging to a class of medications known as interleukin-4 receptor alpha antagonists, Dupixent medication works by blocking IL-4 and IL-13 signalling and can be considered a monoclonal antibody. The rationale behind blocking markers such as IL-4 and IL-13 is that many types of cells involved in inflammation, including mast cells, macrophages, and lymphocytes, express these interleukins. However, Dupixent's mechanism of action is not fully understood. Dupixent prescription medication is indicated for add-on maintenance treatment in some patients with moderate to severe asthma and as a treatment for some cases of moderate or severe eczema. Dupixent should not be used to relieve status asthmaticus or acute bronchospasm.
Dupixent - Cost and Dosing
Dupixent is a solution medication that is generally self-administered by subcutaneous injection after it reaches room temperature. Depending on the indication and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider, Dupixent injections may be prescribed as Dupixent 200 mg or Dupixent 300 mg maintenance doses with an initial loading dose. Dupixent is packaged as two types of injections - Dupixent 200 mg / 1.14 mL solution and Dupixent 300 mg / 2 mL solution in single-dose pre-filled syringes with needle shields. Dupixent medication is expensive and can cost thousands of dollars when paying the list price for Dupixent 300 mg / 2 mL pre-filled syringe with needle shield, even when using a Dupixent coupon. Some insurance plans may cover the cost of Dupixent injection medication when indicated. Dupixent injections may be slightly yellow in color and should be stored refrigerated between 2° C and 8° C.
Can I Buy Dupixent Online?
Dupixent injections require a prescription to be dispensed in the United States.
