Xolair - Overview
Xolair is a medication sometimes prescribed to people who have persistent asthma or have some forms of chronic idiopathic urticaria. At some point in the future, Push Health might be able to connect people who need a Xolair prescription with a medical provider who can prescribe Xolair injections when appropriate to do so.
Xolair - Cost and Dosing
Xolair prescription medication contains the active ingredient omalizumab and belongs to a class of medications known as IgE antibody medications - somewhat similar to Fasenra and Nucala. Xolair is sometimes prescribed to people with moderate of severe asthma or chronic urticaria conditions. Xolair injections are meant for subcutaneous administration and are typically started at Xolair 75 mg every 2 to 4 weeks, depending on the health needs of the patient and the judgement of the medical prescriber. Xolair injections are expensive, sometimes costing several hundred dollars or more for a Xolair injection at a pharmacy in the United States. Xolair prescription discount cards and copay cards can sometimes be found online and some insurance plans may help with costs associated with Xolair prescription injections when buying Xolair medication at the pharmacy.
Can I Buy Xolair Online?
The Xolair injection requires a prescription to be dispensed by a pharmacy and, as such, Xolair OTC (over the counter) is not available in the United States. Additionally, one cannot buy Xolair online before consulting a licensed medical provider. People who might need a Xolair injection prescription, however, may be able to use Push Health in the future to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe the Xolair shot when appropriate to do so.
Xolair - Side Effects
The Xolair prescription injection can cause side effects when used, including pain at the injection site, joint pain, dizziness, itching and other skin reactions. Nausea, upper respiratory infections, headache and cough have also been reported after use of the Xolair shot. The Xolair injection and alcohol should not be used together. People with an allergy to Xolair medication, injections ingredients in the formulation, or other IgE antibody medications should avoid using Xolair injections. Prior to administering Xolair medication, it is necessary to discuss potential side effects or concerns with a pharmacist or other qualified medical provider.
