Xolair Injections

Xolair® (omalizumab) is a medication approved for preventing asthma attacks caused by allergic asthma. It should only be used in people whose asthma is not adequately controlled by inhaled steroids. Xolair is also approved for treating chronic hives of unknown cause. For this use, it is injected once every four weeks. 
The medicine is available by prescription only and comes in injectable form. Xolair injections are typically given every two to four weeks by your healthcare provider. By binding to IgE antibodies (which play an important role in allergic reactions), the medication can block the effects of allergic reactions and help prevent asthma attacks.
You should talk to your healthcare provider before getting Xolair injections if you are pregnant or thinking of becoming pregnant, or have plans to travel to an area with a high risk for parasitic infections.
