There are currently several biologic drugs approved for use in treating severe uncontrolled asthma: Mepolizumab, Omalizumab, Benralizumab, and Dupilumab are the most commonly given. Some of these medications are also used to treat other allergy conditions of the skin and nose.
We can perform blood tests to determine which biologic therapy would be the most effective for your asthma. Depending on the biologic medication recommended, you may receive it as an injection every two to eight weeks. Many of the biologics can be taken by injection at home.
Your allergy providers here at San Tan Allergy and Asthma and Arcadia Allergy and Asthma are excited to help you determine which treatment is right for you and works with you to make sure the treatment is effective.
With proper treatment, you can minimize your asthma symptoms and enjoy a better quality of life, stay active, and do the activities you love!
