DUPIXENT (dupilumab) is a prescription medicine used to treat people 6 years of age and older with moderate-to-severe atopic dermatitis (eczema) that is not well controlled with prescription therapies used on the skin (topical), or who cannot use topical therapies. DUPIXENT can be used with or without topical corticosteroids. It is not known if DUPIXENT is safe and effective in children with atopic dermatitis under 6 years of age.

Important Safety Information

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

Please see additional Important Safety Information throughout this video and adjacent links for full Prescribing Information.

Individual results with DUPIXENT may vary.

Before starting DUPIXENT, you should talk to your doctor about all the medical conditions you have and medications you are taking.

You and your doctor should also discuss the potential benefits and risks of treatment with DUPIXENT including the most common side effects such as injection site reactions and some serious side effects such as allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis, and eye problems.

KATHY:

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!

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 eye problems
  • have a parasitic (helminth) infection
  • are scheduled to receive any vaccinations. You should not receive a “live vaccine” if you are treated with DUPIXENT.
  • are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known whether DUPIXENT will harm your unborn baby.
    • There is a pregnancy exposure registry for women who take DUPIXENT during pregnancy to collect information about the health of you and your baby. Your healthcare provider can enroll you or you may enroll yourself. To get more information about the registry call 1-877-311-8972 or go to https://mothertobaby.org/ongoing-study/dupixent/.
  • 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 if you have atopic dermatitis and asthma and 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 (hypersensitivity), including a severe reaction known as anaphylaxis. Stop using DUPIXENT and tell your healthcare provider or get emergency help right away if you get any of the following symptoms: breathing problems, fever, general ill feeling, swollen lymph nodes, swelling of the face, mouth and tongue, hives, itching, fainting, dizziness, feeling lightheaded (low blood pressure), joint pain, or skin rash.
  • Eye problems. Tell your healthcare provider if you have any new or worsening eye problems, including eye pain or changes in vision.

The most common side effects in patients with atopic dermatitis include injection site reactions, eye and eyelid inflammation, including redness, swelling, and itching, and cold sores in your mouth or on your lips.

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 www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Use DUPIXENT exactly as prescribed. Your healthcare provider will tell you how much DUPIXENT to inject and how often to inject it. DUPIXENT is an injection given under the skin (subcutaneous injection). 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. Do not try to inject DUPIXENT until you have been shown the right way by your healthcare provider. In children 12 years of age and older, it is recommended that DUPIXENT be administered by or under supervision of an adult. In children younger than 12 years of age, DUPIXENT should be given by a caregiver.
