Are there any forum users currently on Xolair? I was told today that this is my only option. I was very surprised since I have had the hives since Thanksgiving (somewhat new). For the last 8-9 weeks I have been on Prendisone as everytime I try to go off, I get a huge flare up. Currently I am on 3mg which keeps them somewhat in check. In addition, I am on Ranitidine (Zantac) in the morning and evening, Levocetirizine (AM), Hydroxyzine 100mg in PM and singular in the PM. I do not think this is due to food although I notice some swelling and exascerbation when I drink wine-maybe the sulfites??. I am of course going for a second opinion at Mt Sinai in NYC. I also have MS (relapsing remitting) so I have an autoimmune disease. My MS doctor does not correlate this with the hives. If anyone has experience with Xolair or has had any other success with anything else, please share.
