Considering Dupixent

SHARRON: I have lived with severe asthma most of my life. It developed early on when I was in middle school, and then as an adult, I had to use my rescue inhaler very frequently and the nebulizer as well.

RACHEL: I was diagnosed with severe asthma at the age of ten.

I had a lot of coughing, wheezing, feeling short of breath. My chest would get tight. We tried a lot of different asthma medications, but I would still end up in the hospital a couple of times a year. It had a really big impact on my life.

SHARRON: So, I love to sing, and singing was challenging to carry a note all the way through. I just couldn’t breathe. It was just hard to breathe.

RACHEL: The hardest thing to deal with was my wheezing. It was all the time. If we were sitting in a quiet classroom, the people next to me could hear me wheezing.

SHARRON: My asthma was not under control. Every day I woke up knowing that there’s a chance that I could have a severe asthma attack and go to the ER. It was definitely a weight on my mind with living like that, and I felt hopeless.

RACHEL: I had a really bad asthma attack when I was twenty-five years old that resulted in me being in the hospital for a week and after that, I was like, “Enough is enough!” I have to do something more to control my asthma.

SHARRON: So, my doctor treated my asthma with rescue inhalers, anti-inflammatories, oral steroids and long-acting inhalers. They weren’t managing the asthma well; it was not controlled.

One day on a follow-up appointment, my doctor brought up DUPIXENT as an add-on therapy. He talked about it being a biologic, what that was, and I was ready for it.

If there was a chance that it could help control my asthma, then I was ready for it and willing to do whatever I needed to do.

RACHEL: When my doctor suggested DUPIXENT, I was open to it. We had a candid conversation. I asked a lot of questions. She explained to me what was going on in my body and that DUPIXENT could work for patients like me, so I wanted to try it.

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

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

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

RACHEL: After starting DUPIXENT, I was able to do some of my simple, everyday activities without my asthma getting in the way as often, like running around the yard with my dogs, helping with the outdoor chores.

SHARRON: Over time I noticed that the wheezing decreased, I didn’t have to use my rescue inhaler as often, and I think the best of all was that I was able to sing and hold the note.

RACHEL: I never thought that I would be where I am in my asthma journey. It’s a very good feeling. I feel a lot of relief knowing that my asthma is better controlled.

SHARRON: It feels great to be able to manage my asthma better.

RACHEL: I’ve learned to be a good advocate for myself and that I do not have to accept uncontrolled asthma.

VO:

Taking Dupixent

RACHEL: It's really important to me to take DUPIXENT as directed by my doctor. I make it a priority. My severe asthma is something I need to keep controlled. It's not going away. It's something I live with, and I need to manage it.

SHARRON: I understand that my severe asthma is a chronic condition, there will always be underlying inflammation, and that my severe asthma will never quit and neither can I.

RACHEL: I feel motivated to stay on my treatment schedule, because I know what it feels like not to be able to breathe well, and I want to do everything I can to help avoid being in that situation.

SHARRON: What motivates me to stay on treatment is knowing that my current treatment plan is working. With DUPIXENT I’m able to do more of what I want to do and with less asthma.

RACHEL: Having a routine has definitely helped me stay on track. I take my DUPIXENT every two weeks. It’s a system I’m comfortable with.

SHARRON: So, I have a DUPIXENT reminder on my calendar and an alarm set on my phone. It’s scheduled for every two weeks, and it’s like a ritual for me. It is how I take care of myself.

RACHEL: When I first started out on DUPIXENT, the DUPIXENT MyWay® patient support program was really helpful. They are there to help you answer questions about DUPIXENT. They can help you set up reminders to start and maintain a routine. But remember your doctor is always the best source of information.

SHARRON: My doctor recommended that I reach out to DUPIXENT MyWay after he wrote the prescription. I’m so glad he did! They’ve been a tremendous resource for me, and it’s good to know that I can reach out to them.

RACHEL: Before I started DUPIXENT, I told my doctor about all the medical conditions I had and the 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 of the serious side effects such as allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, and inflammation of your blood vessels.

SHARRON: Over time, I’ve definitely gotten more used to taking DUPIXENT. It’s a part of my life just like going to the doctor.

RACHEL: I am comfortable taking DUPIXENT every two weeks. I know that it helps control my asthma, and I feel that it's helping prevent me from another asthma attack. It’s what my doctor and I decided I need to do.

Patients can take part in treatment decisions. Listen to a patient self-advocate for themselves and DUPIXENT with their doctor.

In about 40 seconds you’re going to hear how a patient and doctor might discuss life with moderate-to-severe asthma that is not well controlled and potential treatment with DUPIXENT® (dupilumab). DUPIXENT is a prescription medicine used with other asthma medicines for the maintenance treatment of moderate-to-severe asthma in people aged 12 years and older whose asthma is not controlled with their current asthma medicines. DUPIXENT helps prevent severe asthma attacks (exacerbations) and can improve your breathing. DUPIXENT may also help reduce the amount of oral corticosteroids you need while preventing severe asthma attacks and improving your breathing. DUPIXENT is not used to treat sudden breathing problems. It is not known if DUPIXENT is safe and effective in children with asthma under 12 years of age. Let’s take a listen.

DOCTOR: While your asthma is still uncontrolled, it looks like your symptoms haven’t gotten worse, and your test results are about the same as last time. That’s good. I don’t think we’ll have to change your medications at this point.

PATIENT: OK…but I was hoping to talk to you about how my asthma’s really been affecting me.

DOCTOR: OK, tell me more.

PATIENT: Well, there’s so much I can’t do. Like the other day: I was at a birthday party for a friend [pause] and got winded singing “Happy Birthday.” So, of course, now I’m worried about having issues swimming and keeping up with my family next month when we go on our beach trip.

DOCTOR: Are you taking your asthma medications every day like we discussed?

PATIENT: Yeah, I take them, [pause] but it’s not enough. My chest still gets tight, and I feel like I can’t breathe; I can’t seem to stop having asthma attacks. Is there something else I can try?

DOCTOR: Well, you know, sometimes asthma can be hard to control. But I didn’t know it was having such a big impact on your daily life, so I’m glad you brought it up. There are other medicines we can consider.

PATIENT: Actually, that’s one of the things I wanted to talk to you about. I saw something about this medicine called DUPIXENT. Can you tell me anything about it?

DOCTOR: I do have patients who take DUPIXENT. Some have said it has helped prevent asthma attacks from even happening.

PATIENT: That sounds like what I need.

DOCTOR: Before we make a decision, I’d like to tell you a little more about DUPIXENT. Would that be OK?

PATIENT: Sure.

DOCTOR: DUPIXENT is a subcutaneous injection. So…[patient interrupts]

PATIENT: What does sub…subcutaneous mean?

DOCTOR: It just means under the skin. After the initial injection, you would be giving yourself an injection under the skin every other week. We’ll make sure you’re comfortable with the process before you start at home.

PATIENT: Are there any side effects?

DOCTOR: The most common side effects include injection site reactions, pain in the throat—also called oropharyngeal pain—and cold sores in the mouth or on the lips.

PATIENT: OK.

DOCTOR: So, do you think you’re interested in trying DUPIXENT?

PATIENT: Yes! I’m ready to try something different.

DOCTOR: OK, let’s talk about how to get started. [pause] It’s an add-on medication, so you’ll still need to take your regular asthma medicines.

PATIENT: How will I know DUPIXENT is working?

DOCTOR: Give it at least two weeks. After that you may notice that you can breathe better. You may even be able to reduce or eliminate your use of oral steroids. We’ll schedule a follow-up so I can check your progress.

PATIENT: Thanks. I’m looking forward to doing more.
