I will be starting Xolair after I am discharged from the hospital (kidney cancer). I would like to know what to expect. Thanks for your comments in advance. Bruce ## Xolair contains the active ingredient Omalizumab and it is not currently approved in the U.S. as a cancer treatment, it is used to treat asthma. Are you certain that is the right name of the medication you are asking about? Preliminary research has actually shown that while this does play a role in the immune systems recognition of cancer cells, it may increase risks of developing cancer. You can read more on it here: ## I have sever asthma and I have been on this drug since 2003 when it first came out.

Xolair hair loss
1 Reply RSS
I have been on xolair for over a year now. After the first 3 months of treatment, I lost a lot of hair during the next few months. Much more than the normal nightly loss but doctor denied that xolair had anything to do with it. I know better. Hair loss stabilized around the 6 to 7 month period. I'm very lucky to have had a lot of hair to begin with or I could have been bald by now. ## Hello, Mark! How are you? Hair loss has been noted by the FDA as being reported in post-approval use. Since it's not listed among the typical side effects that were compiled pre-approval, then your doctor may not be aware of it. Other side effects are listed as possibly including dizziness, ear pain, joint/muscle pain and dry mouth. I'm glad it stabilized for you. Are you back to your normal lo... ...

Xolair & major surgery
1 Reply RSS
Has anyone had surgery while on Xolair im giong for hip replacement & can find no posts on this Someone said maybe i should stop before surgery Xolair progam can not answer this question Has anyone had any surgery done while on Xolair ## @pudzzy, If you're truly concerned about taking this medication during a surgery, I would highly recommend discussing this with your surgeon prior to the operation. Reason being is that different surgeons have different pre and post operative instructions, where as some don't even allow you to take a multivitamin supplement, let alone a prescription medication. They each have their safety reasons I'm sure, but it's probably wise to make others aware of the medications you're taking, especially when it's going to be before a m... ...

Xolair - My Experience
Post a Reply
I started Xolair when I was 16 and I have now been on the drug for 5 years. Before Xolair my asthma and allergies were uncontrollable. I had been on steroids full time since I was 7, and as a result of this I was combatting multiple steroid side effects such as thinning bones, stunted development, weight issues and many more. Even on full time steroids my asthma was uncontrollable. I spent my childhood in and out of hospitals and only managed to attend school part time. My illness effected every part of my life. My parents and my pediatrician had been pushing for me to start Xolair and at 16 I was finally able to get onto a trail of the drug. I can honestly say it has 100% changed my life. It worked like a miracle. I was able to come off steroids for the first time in 9 years. I stopped... ...

xolair and parathyroid
Post a Reply
Hi everybody, I've been on Xolair for 7 months for an uncontrollable asthma. Last month I passed two kidney stones. Lab work shows calcium within normal range but my PTH levels keep going up weekly. I'm suspicious that Xolair might have caused this since it's an immune system related condition. I'm still under treatment and very concerned that there might be a relation. Has anybody experienced parathyroid issues with Xolair? I appreciate your input. ...

Xolair Hair Loss & Joint Pain
2 Replies RSS
I am taking Xolair for autoimmune disease. I have told my doctor about my severe hair loss and he suggested that it is not because of the Xolair, but instead autoimmune response. I, of course, think it is because of the Xolair have I read a lot of what other people taking the drug have said. Is there any information I can point my doctor to in hopes of getting better/different treatment. ## Hello, Mel! How are you doing? I am very sorry about the problems that you're having. Your doctor just needs to look at the detail prescribing information. It is all listed in there among the side effect information. You may also experience nausea and fatigue. Does anyone else have any advice to add? ## Hi. I have been on xolair for 9 months. I started shedding 5 months in, and it hasn't stop... ...

I have been taking this medication for 5 month and I have experience a lot of hair loss. Spoke with a friend who is taking the medication as well and has experienced tremendous hair loss. She has used Redkin Hair Products, with good success, she has managed to recoup much of her hair. Has anyone else experienced hair loss? ## I too have had hair loss. My hair is very thin now and I haven't touched a razor to my legs in months. ## yeah. I'm 16 and i have. ## Unfortunately, there isn't a lot of side effect information available on this drug, yet. You would probably be surprised to know how many drugs do cause hair loss, though. ## Hi. I am 20 years old and I have been shedding hair like crazy over the past two years..... I am not sure why this is happening. It's not geneti... ...

Xolair neurological reaction
3 Replies RSS
I have a brain injury due to an unfortunate meeting with a moose and my car. I was doing very well. I actually went skiing in February. My last xolair injection was march 1. On march 2, I had to go to the ER because of anaphylaxis. By march 6, I couldn't walk well. I was admitted to the rehab unit at the hospital for 12 days. I am using a walker to get around. Has anyone else had reaction similar, or a neurological reaction? ## Hi, Michele! I am very sorry about what happened to you. Anaphylaxis is actually the main adverse reaction listed for Xolair and it is likely that it is what caused the neurologic problems. Thus, they are basically an indirect result of the Xolair and a direct result of the anaphylactic reaction. Learn more Xolair details here. Anaphylaxis has been known to o... ...

have been on Xolair for 10 years had bad asthma attack rushed to hospital anybody else been on that long and has severe attack/ ## Hello, Blonde57! I'm very sorry about what happened. Do you know what triggered it? I don't think any of us allergy sufferers ever find any treatment that works 100% of the time and prevents all attacks, sadly enough, because I am totally with you on wishing there were such treatments. Did your doctor make any adjustment to your medications? Has anyone else had such an experience with this one? Im wondering if, after 10 years, it may be losing efficacy, because your body has gotten too used to it. The FDA lists the typical side effects of this medication as possibly including itching, burning, stuffy or runny nose. ...
