DUPIXENT: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Eczema “I’ve been using Dupixent for almost 8 months now and am 95% clear. I have minor itching that comes and goes on my chin and back of my ears but my body and face are clear. I can finally fall asleep and sleep through the night without itching. I did have some itching in my eyes but my eye doctor prescribed eye drops (Alrex) and after a few months my eyes no longer itch.I’ve have eczema all my life and at 48 am finally living a better quality of life thanks to dupixent! No more steroid creams, prednisone and UV light therapy sessions. Wish this was available sooner but better now than never!”

For Eczema “After having gone through every cream, ointment and purchasing a personal light box, I can officially say Dupixent has changed my life.I am a 61 year old female that has suffered, yes suffers, for 7 years with this horrible skin irritation.I have a beach house which became my refuge because of the breakouts on hand and legs whew embarrassing. I wouldn’t go on beach in a swimsuit.I have just taken my 10th injection (I take every other Wednesday) and I have one spot, the size of a quarter on the back of my arm.I went through total body but thankfully never on my face. After the 5th injection I knew it was working. It only got better and now ‘I AM FREE’!Don’t give up! It may take shorter for some, longer for others but this had changed my life! Thank you Dr E for recommending this and thank you insurance for paying. Otherwise, I would still be sleeping less than 3 hours per night, no more bloody arms, legs, chest,etc and crying!”

For Eczema “I am 46 years old and about two and a half years ago, I got eczema from head to toe. I had never had it before and still don’t know what caused it. It was so bad that I scratched my way into the hospital twice with infections. Once for a week, the second time the infection set in a bone in my shoulder. Had to be in a nursing home to receive IV antibiotics for 6 weeks after having surgery to remove a piece of my collar bone. I started Dupixent almost a month ago. I am not sure if it is working because while in the nursing home, I re-started a steroid ointment. The ointment gave me some relief. I can say that I am not itching as much and my skin is looking better. Injection burns on thigh. Hoping I will have a better review in a month.”

SonTin (taken for 1 to 6 months) February 10, 2018

For Atopic Dermatitis “Just took my fourth dose and the results are fantastic. Used to have flare ups: hives with red face, chest, arms, legs and intense itching. These every three day episodes were followed by flaking skin everywhere. Now minimal flare ups that produce a couple hives and last only overnight. To go 10 full days with no reactions and limited itching has been life changing. I would say I’m about 75% clear of all my symptoms with no side effects. Thank you Dupixent!”

For Eczema “I’ve suffered from eczema my whole life. I am now 31 years old. It got extremely severe at age 21 (probably due to introduction of alcohol) and have broken out from head to toe consistently every week. I’ve been prescribed ointments, prednisone, steroid injections in the hips, light treatment, I even have a prescribed standing light bed (tanning bed) in my closet, nothing works. I’m now on my third injection and my life has changed drastically. My skin is so smooth and is at 95% clear. I can now wear makeup without the dry flaky skin at the end of the day. I have not called out sick due to my breakouts in over a month which is rare because I used to about once every week. I used to suffer the consequences of a major breakout because of one or two alcoholic beverages but I was able to have multiple this past week on vacation with no sign of a breakout. This drug literally erased 30 years of severe eczema!!”
