    I'm only giving one star because I haven't been on Xolair long enough to see if it works. I have only just started Xolair, but someone told me they read if you go off of Xolair, your IGes return with a vengeance ten times more than before. Is this true? Does anyone know anything about that? Would that mean if I really get into this (I've only had two injections so far) that I'm ... Show Full Comment

    Cannot complain about the drug! It has worked great on treating my symptoms. I have been on it a very short time and have been wondering if it causes some mild side effects for me. I feel very tired within 8 hours of my injection and kind of sore for the next 24 hours. But my energy level is through the roof and I am sleeping through the night.

    My son has very severe allergic asthma that has NEVER been controlled. I waited for Xolair to become available in Canada. I was elated when it did. Ran to the doctor.

    I developed asthma after being exposed to off-gases while working in an operating room. Tried xolair for 6 months--and it made me feel awful--and I felt sick for days after the injection. I now-also have an intolerance to the heat-which is not good as I live in Az. I recommend caution--
