HOW DUPIXENT IS TAKEN

Not an Inhaler.
Not a Steroid.

DUPIXENT is a form of medicine called a biologic and taken by injection under the skin (subcutaneous injection). It is taken differently than oral steroids and inhalers.

What you should know

DUPIXENT can be given by your doctor in a clinic or self-administered at home. If your healthcare provider decides that you or a caregiver can give DUPIXENT injections, you or your caregiver should receive training on the right way to prepare and inject DUPIXENT.

Transcript

VO:

RACHEL: I was a little surprised when I found out that DUPIXENT would require an injection every two weeks. It was different from what I was used to. I was used to taking another pill or using another inhaler. I knew adding DUPIXENT was going to change my routine. It was going to be new, but over time I’ve gotten comfortable with it.

SHARRON: When I found out that DUPIXENT was an injectable, I was okay with it. If there was a chance that it could help get my severe asthma under control, then I was willing to do whatever I needed to do.

RACHEL: My doctor and nurses showed me how to properly self-inject. I am a registered nurse and I give injections at work, but I still needed to learn how to properly inject DUPIXENT myself.

SHARRON: Your doctor will walk you through the injection process. I also watched the video on DUPIXENT.com and followed the instructions.

RACHEL: DUPIXENT comes in a pre-filled syringe or pen and is a subcutaneous injection, which means it goes just underneath the skin.

SHARRON: I appreciate that there’s also a pre-filled pen for patients 12 years and older. I used a pre-filled syringe.

RACHEL: Before I started DUPIXENT, I told my doctor about all the medical conditions I had, and medications I was taking.

SHARRON: My doctor and I went over the potential benefits and risks of treatment, including the most common side effects such as injection site reactions.

RACHEL: We also talked about some serious side effects such as allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, and inflammation of your blood vessels.

SHARRON: Well early on, my doctor steered me to the patient support program, DUPIXENT MyWay®, and I’m so glad that he did. They’ve been a great resource and even offered to send a nurse to my home to help with further instruction.

RACHEL: I was really blown away by how much support the DUPIXENT MyWay team provides. You feel that they are in this with you and they’re there to help!

SHARRON: I like to do my self-injection in the evening in a quiet part of the house where I can focus. My routine is to do the self-injection after I’ve gotten out of the shower.

RACHEL: I write DUPIXENT on my calendar at home and in my pocket calendar to help me remember when to take it. I’ve got my self-injection routine down. I’m comfortable with it.
