Thought I would provide an update on my progress.
I've had my 3rd Xolair injection 2 days ago (300mg). The previous 2 injections didnt help and I was told clinical trials show best results after 3rd dosage. Well....2 days after my 3rd Xolair, I have woken up with a massive breakout!
So that's it...no more Xolair. In SA, it costs R10 000 per injection - thats the price of a home mortgage repayment. For nothing. Zilch. Nada.
The ONLY thing that keeps it under control is a low daily dosage of Prednisone (10mg). Which costs R10 for a months supply.
Next step is to consider immuno suppressants - but I will need to weigh up the side effects of that vs a low daily dose of prednisone.
And so the joy continues....wish the medical fraternity could find a cure for this already instead of making us pay tens of thousands of rands for stuff that doesnt even make the slightest difference!
