    Hello, i've been diagnotic from ciu and xolair is my treatment, the regular dose of xolair for ciu is 300mg each 4 weeks ( sorry i ´m french person my english is so bad) but i was on regular dose for the first 3 months after a big rash my doctor put me in a double dose 300mg each 2 weeks, this dose was perfect for me since 2 1/2 months… I start at 40mg of reactine and now I'm at 10mg, i know that's not the regular dose and its hard for assurance agrement ( exceptionnal dose for exceptionnal medicament) but its works for me !

      Glad to hear that you found something that helps you but I sure hope Xolair will work for me cause I just got approve this week after nearly 4 years of suffering so bad it's even in my face. I start May 16 with Xolair god I hope it works suffering so bad especially at night. I tried Reactine at 40mg and did work for me but so glad it works for you and I know how happy you must be cause it's so depressing and itch so bad and now i get even some bruises.

    I feel so bad for yoy I suffered for three yrs also so I can imagine what your going through.  I'Ve had 4 shots of zolair so far and it's kind of working it did'nt cure me completely but i havent had a big outbreak since.  I notice when i get very anxious I get itchy and have to take more anti histamine.  I'm still taking my meds 50 mg of apo doxipin which is a anti depressant but for itching and 10 mg of singulair and 20 to 80 mg of anti his depending on the day.  Are you watching a little bit of what you eat to.  Have you ruled out everything else?   Please reply and let me know how you are doing?

      Hello ty for your reply, i have 17 years and this urticaria destroyed all my best period from life, i took all the anti histamine, all, the only medicine that works it`s medrol but have side effect but it`s the only one thath works and is my single chance... Xolaire didn`t works, i`m in 4 months and nothing, it`s so hard, when it`s sun i feel big rash on my body, only when it`s hot, when it`s cold i`m normal, i don`t have nothing but when it`s hot out i can`t leave house, i stay with air conditioning 24/24 in summer.

      Where do you live?  If zolair does'nt work it could be something keep pushing them to find the cause don't give up.

    33 years old, i try prednisone but side effects was terrible, i change anti histaminics at 3 to 6 months, before the double dosage of xolair… it can be the solution for you too? Talk to your doctor for 300mg each 2 weeks ? I hope you will find a solution, do you have angioedema ?
