People who suffer from allergic asthma attacks can often benefit from using Xolair® (omalizumab), a prescription medication that comes in the form of an injection. The medication is injected just under the skin. Generally, your healthcare provider will administer the injections. Xolair is also approved for treating chronic hives of unknown cause.  
The medication works by binding to certain antibodies to block the effects of allergic reactions, which can help prevent asthma attacks. In clinical studies, people taking Xolair had fewer asthma symptoms than those who were not taking it.
Most people tolerate Xolair well; and even when side effects occur, they are usually minor. Side effects of Xolair can include joint pain, reactions at the injection site, and body pain. Prior to taking this medication, you should let your healthcare provider know if you have plans to travel to an area with a high risk for parasitic infections.
