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.

Tell your healthcare provider right away if you have: rash, shortness of breath, persistent fever, chest pain, or a feeling of pins and needles or numbness of your arms or legs.

The most common side effects in patients with asthma include injection site reactions, pain in the throat (oropharyngeal pain), and high count of a certain white blood cell (eosinophilia).

INFORMACIÓN IMPORTANTE
DE SEGURIDAD E INDICACIÓN

No uses este medicamento si eres alérgico al dupilumab o a alguno de los ingredientes en DUPIXENT®.

Antes de usar DUPIXENT, infórmale a tu proveedor de atención médica sobre todas tus afecciones médicas, incluyendo:

  • si tienes una infección parasitaria (helminto)
  • si tienes programado recibir alguna vacuna. No debes recibir una “vacuna viva” si estás en tratamiento con DUPIXENT.
  • si estás embarazada o planeas quedar embarazada. Se desconoce si DUPIXENT dañará a tu bebé en gestación.
    • Existe un registro de exposición durante el embarazo para mujeres que toman DUPIXENT durante el embarazo, con el fin de recopilar información sobre tu salud y la de tu bebé. Tu proveedor de atención médica puede inscribirte, o puedes inscribirte por tu cuenta. Para obtener más información sobre el registro, llama al 1‑877‑311‑8972 o visita https://mothertobaby.org/ongoing-study/dupixent/.
  • si estás amamantando o planeas amamantar. Se desconoce si DUPIXENT se transmite a través de la leche materna.

Informa a tu proveedor de atención médica sobre todos los medicamentos que tomas, incluidos los medicamentos de venta libre y de venta con receta, las vitaminas y los suplementos a base de hierbas.

Especialmente, informa a tu proveedor de atención médica si estás tomando corticosteroides orales, tópicos o inhalados o si usas un medicamento para el asma. No cambies ni suspendas tu medicamento corticosteroide u otro medicamento para el asma sin hablar primero con tu proveedor de atención médica. Esto puede hacer que reaparezcan otros síntomas que fueron controlados por el medicamento corticosteroide u otro medicamento para el asma.

DUPIXENT puede causar efectos secundarios graves, que incluyen:

  • Reacciones alérgicas (hipersensibilidad), incluida una reacción grave conocida como anafilaxia. Deja de usar DUPIXENT e infórmale a tu proveedor de atención médica o busca atención de emergencia de inmediato si tienes alguno de los siguientes síntomas: problemas respiratorios, fiebre, malestar general, nódulos linfáticos inflamados, inflamación del rostro, la boca y la lengua, urticaria, picazón, desmayos, mareos, sensación de mareo (presión arterial baja), dolor en las articulaciones o erupción cutánea.
  • Inflamación de los vasos sanguíneos. En ocasiones poco frecuentes, esto puede ocurrir en personas con asma que reciben DUPIXENT. Puede suceder en personas que también toman un medicamento esteroide por vía oral y se suspende el medicamento o se reduce la dosis. Se desconoce si esto es causado por DUPIXENT. Informa a tu proveedor de atención médica de inmediato si tienes lo siguiente: erupción cutánea, falta de aliento, fiebre persistente, dolor en el pecho o sensación de alfileres y agujas o adormecimiento de los brazos o las piernas.

Los efectos secundarios más comunes en pacientes con asma incluyen reacciones en el lugar de la inyección, dolor de garganta (dolor orofaríngeo) y un alto recuento de ciertos glóbulos blancos (eosinofilia).

Infórmale a tu proveedor de atención médica si sufres algún efecto secundario que te cause malestar o que no desaparezca. Estos no son todos los efectos secundarios posibles de DUPIXENT. Llama a tu médico para obtener consejos médicos sobre los efectos secundarios. Te recomendamos informar sobre los efectos secundarios negativos de los medicamentos de venta con receta a la Administración de Alimentos y Medicamentos de los Estados Unidos (Food and Drug Administration, FDA). Visita www.fda.gov/medwatch o llama al 1‑800‑FDA‑1088.

Usa DUPIXENT exactamente como te lo recetaron. Tu proveedor de atención médica te indicará la cantidad de DUPIXENT que debes inyectarte y con qué frecuencia. DUPIXENT es una inyección que se administra debajo de la piel (inyección subcutánea). Si tu proveedor de atención médica decide que tú o tu compañero de cuidados médicos pueden administrar las inyecciones de DUPIXENT, deben recibir capacitación sobre la manera correcta de preparar e inyectar DUPIXENT. No intentes inyectarte DUPIXENT hasta que tu proveedor de atención médica te haya demostrado la forma correcta. En niños de 12 años o más, se recomienda que un adulto coloque o supervise la administración de DUPIXENT.

Consulta la Información de Prescripción completa adjunta, incluida la Información para el Paciente.

INDICACIÓN
