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)
