For Urticaria “I’m on here because my mom takes these shots for idiopathic chronic hives. It isn’t working for her unfortunatley. We live states apart and I’ve had some similar allergic reactions to some of you but I had some luck in discovering the foundation for it. It’s a “rare” but becoming much more common allergy to mammalian meat and all mammal meat bi-products caused by a tick bite called Alpha Gal allergy. Itchy hands and feet and delayed reaction are big indicators for it. There is a simple blood test to find out and then you have to avoid mammal meat and their products like the plague. You can still eat poultry and fish, etc but for some severe cases, you have to be a strict vegan about EVERYTHING. You would not believe the amount of everyday products that use the fat from a cow or the blood of a pig, etc. pretty gross actually. Once you eliminate most to all of these, life improves dramatically! Anyways, hope this helps some of you!!!”

For Urticaria “I had experienced severe frequent episodic urticaria for approximately two years. I’d been tested for allergies and spent a year working with my dermatologist attempting to isolate an allergen without success. He ultimately suggested we try Xolair. All symptoms were gone within 24 hours of the first Xolair injection (300mg – 150mg in each thigh subcutaneously). There were four treatments at four week intervals followed by two 150 mg treatments at four week intervals. There is no research to guide the decision of when to discontinue the drug and no incentive for the manufacturer to conduct the trials. I’ve not had an injection for 8 weeks and remain symptom free.”

For Urticaria “I suffered from chronic hives for months with multiple attempts at different combinations of antihistamines. The condition only worsened. I went from being hive free for short breaks to having hives covering 50% or more of my body constantly day after day for months. Xolair has changed it all. I have been and remain completely hive free. I got my first shot and had immediate relief. I had a couple of small hives that wanted to break through, but literally lasted a couple of hours and went away. They were hardly noticable. Xolair has brought me back to the quality of life I expect.”

For Urticaria “I got my first shot in November and I’ve got a severe insomnia and I couldn’t sleep even with prescribed sleeping pills! My Dr gave me a 1 month break then lowered my dose to half and after one week of my second injection again I’m having a severe insomnia again and it’s affecting my life quality! I am going to ask my Dr to stop this as I’m suffering from a good quality sleep! I googled and figured out insomnia was one of side effects in some patients! Did anyone has the same problem?”

For Urticaria “I had chronic hives for almost 5 years and nothing worked. I was ready to totally break down and knew xolair was my last hope!Had my first shot a month ago and have had no hives no edema no itching and lots of smiles and am feeling like me again!! Do whatever it takes to get this med if you are at the end of your rope. Only side effect has been dental pain which has been way more manageable!Forever grateful for xolair!!”

For Urticaria “I have had another appointment but with no effect on histamine intolerance. I am on my second dose BUT things still are getting worse . Why should I need to still take my previous preventive pills if xolair is suppose to work. It is not working, sorry!”
