Hi I'm new here and doctor wants to put me on Xolair and I'm a bit worry about the side effects and I had these severe rash which are so bad since 2013 and it's itchy everyday and went to holiday in Europe and was not that pleasant with this rash. I was told it will cost 1500 dollars Canadian per shot and hope my plan will accept it cause I'm suppose to start taking it April 11 if approved so did anyone had any side effects from this medicine Xolair

    Hi there

    I did a 6 month course of Xolair last year with great results and no side effects.

    I've just started, this week, my second course so fingers crossed it works just as well!

    I hope that it works as well for you!

    I was on Xolair shots for 1 year. They increased to 300mg. shots. It helped for a few months and then stopped. I did not have any side effects from shot, but unfortunately they did not stop the intense itching and breakouts. Hope u have better luck, a lot of people have had good results.
