As kids grow, they may develop a better sense of how asthma affects them and the steps necessary to
manage their symptoms. Use the tips below to create an injection routine that works for your family. 

Injection Tips & Tricks For CAREGIVERS

When it’s time to inject, consider these tips and tricks from real caregivers:

  • Write the injection day on a calendar so your child knows when it’s
    coming and has time to mentally prepare.
  • When appropriate, allow your child to guide the routine, whether it’s
    choosing a spot to sit, a song to listen to, or the time of day to receive
    the injection.
  • Sometimes providing a reward works well—but often, a little quality
    one-on-one time is incentive enough.

DUPIXENT was studied in a clinical trial with 408 children ages 6 to 11 years old with uncontrolled moderate-to-severe asthma.


(12-17 years)

When kids grow into teenagers, they experience plenty of milestones on their
asthma journey. Use the tips below to help guide your teen along the way.

Taking on More Responsibility

As teens mature, they can become more independent in managing their
condition. Here are a few pieces of advice from real caregivers.

Encourage your teen to keep a symptom journal so they can discuss any
changes with their doctor.

Allow your child to take an active role in their care and ask
questions during appointments. 

Create a care plan for when your child is away from home, including
injection reminders, receiving and storing DUPIXENT shipments, and
administering injections.

For those who are heading off to college, explore additional resources
such as on-campus student health centers, telehealth appointments, or
supplemental injection support from a DUPIXENT MyWay® Nurse Educator.


DUPIXENT works by blocking two of the key sources of Type 2 inflammation, which may be a cause of uncontrolled
moderate-to-severe asthma. Read on to learn more about the link between inflammation and asthma.

the science of what causes asthma
symptoms and how DUPIXENT may help.

Hi there! I’m Pixi, and I help people learn about DUPIXENT.

Today, I’d like to help you understand how DUPIXENT works in your body to improve lung function so you can breathe better in as little as two weeks.

Let’s use an analogy. It might be helpful to think of your asthma symptoms like spam calls.

Both are unwanted, persistent, and can disrupt your daily life.

Meet Mike, just an average cell phone that’s going to help us with this analogy.

He’s trying to relax when...
Poor Mike!

Unwanted interruptions can make mornings tough.

And Mike’s constant spam calls make simple activities, such as getting a good start to the day, walking in the park, and meeting up with friends harder.

Just like your asthma symptoms can make the everyday things you want to do feel like “uphill” tasks.

Frankly, it’s exhausting!

Right now, Mike has no way of blocking these unwanted spam calls.

He needs a spam filter!

Similarly, you may have no way of blocking the unwanted signals in your lungs that can cause asthma symptoms.

See, you may have Type 2 inflammation. 8 out of 10 people with asthma do!

It means there’s a constant underlying inflammation in your lungs caused by immune cells sending out too many inflammatory signals.

All this extra signaling causes the muscles in the lungs to contract and produce too much mucus, narrowing your airways and reducing air flow.

Unlike oral steroids, DUPIXENT targets an underlying source of this inflammation.

It works by attaching to certain proteins on immune cells to block some of the inflammatory signals that contribute to asthma.

So just like adding a spam filter could help Mike reduce his spam calls, adding DUPIXENT can help you reduce your asthma symptoms.

In fact, DUPIXENT was proven to help reduce asthma attacks by up to 81%.

And in a study of people who needed oral steroids, 86% of people reduced or eliminated their oral steroid dose.

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

With his newly-installed spam filter, Mike gets fewer spam calls and can do more of what he loves. What could you do with less asthma?

If your current therapy isn’t doing enough, talk to your doctor about DUPIXENT, the first-of-its-kind asthma treatment proven to help patients breathe better in as little as two weeks. Stay tuned for additional Important Safety Information.

Important Safety
Information and Indication

Do not use if you are allergic to dupilumab or to any of the ingredients in DUPIXENT®.

Before using DUPIXENT, tell your healthcare provider about all your medical conditions, including if you:

  • have a parasitic (helminth) infection
  • are scheduled to receive any vaccinations. You should not receive a "live vaccine" right before and during treatment with DUPIXENT.
  • are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known whether DUPIXENT will harm your unborn baby.
  • are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known whether DUPIXENT passes into your breast milk.

Tell your healthcare provider about all the medicines you take, including prescription and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal supplements.

Especially tell your healthcare provider if you are taking oral, topical, or inhaled corticosteroid medicines or use an asthma medicine. Do not change or stop your corticosteroid medicine or other asthma medicine without talking to your healthcare provider. This may cause other symptoms that were controlled by the corticosteroid medicine or other asthma medicine to come back.

DUPIXENT can cause serious side effects, including:

  • Allergic reactions. DUPIXENT can cause allergic reactions that can sometimes be severe. Stop using DUPIXENT and tell your healthcare provider or get emergency help right away if you get any of the following signs or symptoms: breathing problems or wheezing, swelling of the face, lips, mouth, tongue, or throat, fainting, dizziness, feeling lightheaded, fast pulse, fever, hives, joint pain, general ill feeling, itching, skin rash, swollen lymph nodes, nausea or vomiting, or cramps in your stomach-area.
  • Inflammation of your blood vessels. Rarely, this can happen in people with asthma who receive DUPIXENT. This may happen in people who also take a steroid medicine by mouth that is being stopped or the dose is being lowered. It is not known whether this is caused by DUPIXENT. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you have: rash, chest pain, worsening shortness of breath, a feeling of pins and needles or numbness of your arms or legs, or persistent fever.
  • Joint aches and pain. Some people who use DUPIXENT have had trouble walking or moving due to their joint symptoms, and in some cases needed to be hospitalized. Tell your healthcare provider about any new or worsening joint symptoms. Your healthcare provider may stop DUPIXENT if you develop joint symptoms.

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

Tell your healthcare provider if you have any side effect that bothers you or that does not go away. These are not all the possible side effects of DUPIXENT. Call your doctor for medical advice about side effects. You are encouraged to report negative side effects of prescription drugs to the FDA. Visit, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Use DUPIXENT exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider. It’s an injection given under the skin (subcutaneous injection). Your healthcare provider will decide if you or your caregiver can inject DUPIXENT. Do not try to prepare and inject DUPIXENT until you or your caregiver have been trained by your healthcare provider. In children 12 years of age and older, it’s recommended DUPIXENT be administered by or under supervision of an adult. In children 6 to less than 12 years of age, DUPIXENT should be given by a caregiver.

Please see accompanying full Prescribing Information including Patient Information.


DUPIXENT is a prescription medicine used with other asthma medicines for the maintenance treatment of moderate-to-severe eosinophilic or oral steroid dependent asthma in adults and children 6 years of age 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 6 years of age.

What’s a Biologic?

Your immune system is made up of cells that are talking to each other. In those with chronic inflammatory conditions, sometimes they talk too much. Biologics work to disrupt the conversation when cells are talking too much.

  • Biologics are specialty medicines that are processed in the body
    differently than inhalers or oral steroids.
  • To be effective and work in the body properly, most biologics are
    delivered by injection.
  • DUPIXENT is a biologic that helps block 2 of the key sources of inflammation inside the body that can cause asthma symptoms.
