 5  Chronic Autoimmune urticaria Xolair is honestly a miracle drug for me. I had been experiencing full body hives (autoimmune urticaria) for months and I had reached my breaking point as no antihistamine worked. Then came Xolair. It took some time to work so you have to be patient but once it did, my quality of life dramatically improved. I no longer experience hives although I can tell when it is wearing off because I will start to itch a bit ( nowhere close to what my hives were like before). I receive monthly injections.

 5  Allergic asthma and bronchiectasis Mild headache direct after treatment. High bloodpressure. Aches and pains in joints for about 3 days after treatment. Huge improvement in lung capacity. Life changing medicine. Thank you! F 56 3 years
 4  Idiopathic angioedema and urticaria None so far. Just had my 1st dose 3 days ago. Painless shot in both arms. Had to be observed at the immunologist office for 2 hrs. post shot, but did not have any ill effects. Can't say for certain if it is going to work in the long run, but I did experience less angioedema within the first day. F 47 3 days

XOLAIR  (OMALIZUMAB):  Omalizumab is used to control and prevent symptoms (such as wheezing and shortness of breath) caused by asthma that is due to year-round allergens. Controlling symptoms of asthma helps you maintain your normal activities and cuts down on time lost from work or school. Omalizumab is also used to treat hives from an unknown cause (chronic idiopathic urticaria-CIU). This medication must be used regularly to be effective. It does not work right away. If an asthma attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler (such as albuterol, salbutamol) as prescribed.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
