    Ive had asthma for 19yrs and started taking this when it 1st came out. Before Xolair, I was in and out of the hospital 5-6 times per year. In 19yrs I've only been back 1 time. Its a miracle drug & I would advise anyone with severe asthma to give it a try. Its expensive, but worth it.

    I have been on Xolair injections since the drug has been available; no side effects whatsoever- and I am literally symptom free compared to before Xolair when chronic asthma kept me from functioning.

    Always had persistent moderate to severe asthma. I would have attacks every six weeks, they lasted 7-14 days and I had to use large dose of steriods. I could not tolerate my allergy shots and was stopped at a certain dose. For over one year I have had one or two very small episodes. I am exposed to agricultural dusts and pollen. Now, they have a limited empact on me.

    I have had severe allergic asthma each spring since adolescence. I started Xolair last July and this spring was the test. A real miracle-- I have not used my albuterol inhaler once this season, compared to going through at least 2 per season in previous years. It has performed so much better than I had dared hope!

    dust and dust mites don't bother me as much as they used to. I can now go to a hotel and sleep on their mattress (without dust mite covers on it and the box spring and the comforter without getting an asthma attack every time. yippeee
