 4  Steroid Dependent Asthmatic Developed Asthma 2yrs after my Bone Marrow Transplant in March 2010. Started Nucala August 2020. So far only side effect is mild headaches. Peak flow levels after second dose are up from my base line of 600 to 620. Had asthma symptom only last week, but for the first time it wasn't that bad and peak flow only fell slightly. Think it's working for me. Still on 5mg of pred, but will reduce to 4mg after the 4th dose. M 32 3 months

 3  Eosinophils asthma- severe My daughter has had bad muscle and joint pain in both knees, ankles, fingers, jaw, neck and back. We thought her juvenile arthritis came back and was about ready to start her on another biologic Humira but going online I found reviews on her that have similar symptoms. She also has bad headaches and eczema in spots she's never had. This is not a good drug if you have arthritis. My daughter will not be going back for her 4th injection as in right now she can barley walk and I have to drop her off at school like that! I wish I would have realized this sooner or else she would not of gotten her 3rd injection just this last Tuesday. Now we have to wait for the med to leave her system which can take more than a month. It just breaks my heart seeing her in so much pain. For my daughter Symbicort seams to work just fine on its own...I hope. Will be calling both her Pediatric Rheumatologist and asthma doctor tomorrow! Please email if anyone experienced anything like this with an arthritis patient. F 8 3 months
 4   I have had asthma my whole life and now eosinophils asthma too. I have muscle aches. Especially my hips. The tradeoff is no question, I am grateful to be off prednisone. I breathe much better, have much less mucus build up, i no longer have to start everyday with a nasal rinse. I have done things that normally would put me on prednisone and I am still breathing well (rake leaves etc. ) F 61 3 months

 3  Severe Asthma After my first shot I could feel the difference in my breathing. When I had my second dose I felt worse a few days after receiving it. During both doses my back hurt constantly and I had mild headaches throughout the day. I was plagued with fatigue, but I guess being a type 1 diabetic doesnít help any either. M 45 60 days

Now I need to loose the extra 10 lbs but still suffer with the severe itching and raw sore the size of of a silver dollar F 70 6 days
 5  Asthma My teeth and gums have become so painful and I have had diarrhea It has changed my life more energy breathing better able to exercise F 50 5 months

NUCALA  (MEPOLIZUMAB):  This medication is used along with other medications to control and prevent symptoms (such as wheezing and shortness of breath) caused by asthma. Controlling symptoms of asthma helps you do your normal activities and decreases time lost from work or school. Mepolizumab works by reducing swelling (inflammation) of the airways in the lungs to make breathing easier. Mepolizumab is also used to treat a certain immune system disease (eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis-EGPA). It helps to control and prevent symptoms (such as wheezing, shortness of breath, runny nose, facial pain) caused by the disease. It works by reducing swelling (inflammation) of the blood vessels and also decreasing the amount of certain white blood cells (eosinophils) which may cause the disease. This medication must be used regularly to be effective. It does not work right away and should not be used to relieve sudden asthma attacks or breathing problems. If an asthma attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler as prescribed.   (Sources: U.S. Centers for Medicare Services, FDA)
