Results from a 16-week clinical trial of teens ages 12-17 years with DUPIXENT when used alone compared to teens not taking DUPIXENT
Your healthcare provider will tell you how much DUPIXENT to inject and how often.
*Patients who weighed 132 lb or more received DUPIXENT 300 mg every 2 weeks after an initial loading dose of 600 mg (two
300 mg injections), and patients who weighed less than 132 lb received DUPIXENT 200 mg every 2 weeks after an initial
loading dose of 400 mg (two 200 mg injections)
The safety results of DUPIXENT observed in adolescents were consistent with what
was seen in adults
with atopic dermatitis. The most common side effects include injection site reactions, eye and eyelid
inflammation, including redness, swelling, and itching, sometimes with blurred vision, cold sores
in your mouth or on your lips, and high count of a certain white blood cell (eosinophilia).

We were a little skeptical at first. Then, we noticed her skin clearing and improving over time. It was such a relief to find something that works for her.
