Dupixent (Dupilumab) - Overview
Dupilumab, marketed under the name 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 dupilumab prescription can use Push Health to connect with a local medical provider who can prescribe Dupixent injections when appropriate and necessary to do so.
How Does Dupixent Work?
Dupixent (dupilumab), produced by recombinant DNA technology, belongs to a class of medications known as interleukin-4 receptor alpha antagonists. As this type of medication, dupilumab blocks 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, dupilumab's mechanism of action is not fully understood. Dupixent 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. Dupilumab is packaged as two types of Dupixent injections - Dupixent 200 mg / 1.14 mL solution and Dupixent 300 mg / 2 mL solution in single-dose pre-filled syringes with needle shields. Dupilumab 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. Dupixent coupons may be available online and some insurance plans will cover the cost of a Dupixent injection prescription 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?
Dupilumab injections require a prescription to be dispensed in the United States. As such, one cannot just buy Dupixent online or get a Dupixent injection OTC from a pharmacy as they will not dispense it without a valid prescription. Instead, the first step to getting Dupixent is consulting with a medical provider. Push Health can connect people who might need a dupilumab prescription with medical providers who can prescribe a Dupixent injection when appropriate and indicated to do so.
