Xolair and swollen ankles and legs

Posted , 6 users are following.


Has anyone had swollen legs and ankles.. I just started getting them at night and by morning they are gone.. And I watch my salt intake closely so i know that is not it.. Could it be a xolair side effect?? Anyone else?? Thank You ..

    Jana, my hair has thinned quite a lot, but I, like you, cannot go without the Xolair as it was the only med. that finally ended my break outs.  The side effects are not great, but for now, I just don't feel like I have a choice.  Hang in there!

      I agree right now i dont have a choice so if i stay on them I guess i deal with swollen ankles and thinning hair but if those are the only side effects I get from these I guess i am lucky.. I had my 5 th shot end of january and today 8 days later the hives are back.. not bad but itchy and back.. so i took a hydrozine and I do take benedryl every night.. I would sure like to get off of these and just take the shot.. I hate taking so many meds. I worked really hard to build up my immune system then got the hives ..

    i have swollen ankles, started about 8 months ago and would come and go but now they are permanently swollen. it has nothing to do with my diet and i dont have problems with my veins. i was on xolair for 1.5 years and wondering if thats the cause. doctors cant figure it out.
