Hey there, I’m Kathy. Like you, I have a pretty busy life. Between running my own business and keeping up with my two teenagers at home, I’m always trying to stay on top of things.

So, when my doctor prescribed DUPIXENT for my severe atopic dermatitis and told me I’d need to inject under my skin every two weeks, I knew I’d have to find a way to make it part of my routine.

I wanted to stay on track with my DUPIXENT, since it helps me manage my eczema symptoms. I know how it feels to have those itchy, scaly, dry patches on my skin and that horrible crawling sensation under my skin. I had to make my treatment with DUPIXENT a priority.

So, I started putting reminders notifications in my calendar. It’s something simple, I know, but given everything I’m juggling on a daily basis, it ensures that I always know when it’s time for my injection.

As a backup, I asked a few of my family members to follow up with me every two weeks. Not only does this help keep me on track, but it’s comforting to know that my family is there for me and I’m not having to go through this alone.

And there’s always DUPIXENT MyWay. The team there actually calls as a reminder when it’s time for an injection and when it’s time to order another monthly shipment. It’s nice to know that these types of support are available, too.

My advice? When it comes to taking DUPIXENT, it’s important to stay on track by setting up a routine that works for you.

That’s a little something I’ve learned in my DUPIXENT journey.

Thanks for watching!
