DUPIXENT® (dupilumab) is a prescription medicine used to treat people aged 6 years 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.
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.
There is no cure for atopic dermatitis. DUPIXENT can help reduce the signs and symptoms of eczema. Patients’ individual results with DUPIXENT may vary.
Hi, I'm Rachel, and I want to share with you one big misconception I had about my severe atopic dermatitis. And that is… I never really thought about how serious it could be. In my mind, it was just this annoying condition that I had to deal with and could get by with some prescription creams and ointments. So, when my doctor recommended DUPIXENT, I was a little surprised.
The idea of injecting myself was new to me. I mean, I’d heard of self-injections for other diseases like diabetes, but not for eczema. And, to me, having an injection for something happening on my skin was more than I expected.
I remember thinking, “Is this really the point I’ve reached in treating my eczema?” But then again, I tried different prescription creams and ointments. I even made dietary changes like cutting out dairy and meat. I wasn’t getting the results I was looking for, and hoping that it would just go away was wishful thinking. I realized my eczema was serious, and I needed to make a change. That’s when my doctor and I took the next step and moved forward with DUPIXENT. And now, I see my self-injection with DUPIXENT every two weeks as a part of my life.
So, that’s a little bit of My DUPIXENT Journey. Thanks for watching!
Do you still experience symptoms of constant itching and skin flare-ups while using prescription
topical treatments? Answer a few quick questions to better understand moderate-to-severe eczema
(atopic dermatitis), and use the information to help have a discussion with a doctor.
Does the following cycle sound familiar? In eczema patients, the immune system (coupled with an impaired skin barrier) causes inflammation, contributing to the flare-ups on the surface of the skin.
Immune cells in the deep layers of the skin send inflammatory signals to the surface. This is what makes you think, "I really need to scratch my skin."
When you start scratching, you can further break down the outer layer of skin cells and allow germs, irritants, and allergens to penetrate your body.
The more you scratch, the more your skin breaks down. That brings about more itching. The cycle continues.
