While nasal polyp surgery removes nasal polyps and improves symptoms, it may not treat an underlying cause of nasal polyps, which means nasal polyps may grow back and you could need surgery again.

Every Patient

Nasal polyps don’t have to stop you from DUing more. No matter how they affect you, you can rest assured that others have similar
symptoms, experiences, and treatment goals. Here are a few individuals who may consider DUPIXENT for treatment of their Nasal Polyps.

Derek, 43

Loss of Smell


Home brewer, guitar player

Derek didn’t think too much of his mild nasal blockage that often made it difficult for him to fall asleep in his mid-20s. But after symptoms worsened 2 years ago—making it difficult to smell his home-brewed beers—a Nasal Polyps diagnosis and multiple rounds of failed treatments led Derek in search of another treatment for his loss of smell and increased nasal congestion.

Road to Diagnosis

Learn about real patients’ symptoms before
being prescribed DUPIXENT for their nasal
polyps treatment.


Hey, we have some cards stacked here with some questions that were sent from other struggling with CRSwNP and considering DUPIXENT. So, all right, here’s this first card. What was you road to diagnosis? Kathy, why don’t you start?


Thanks, Martin. Well, for me, in the beginning, I'd often get sinus infections.

Now, they'd go away eventually, but over time the infections got more frequent and wouldn't go away as easily. So, I could no longer smell my coffee in the morning or the fresh lilies in front of my home. After a CT scan, my ENT diagnosed me with CRSwNP.

At a young age, I remember dealing with nasal congestion and excessive mucus. I always dealt with these symptoms, but it didn't really become a serious issue until my mid-30s. My symptoms became much more severe, and like Kathy I began to lose my sense of smell. Mucus would completely block my nostrils to the point where it was hard to breathe. My doctor prescribed me oral steroids, which provided some relief, but then my nasal polyps would return. It was very frustrating for me at the time.

Okay, the next question is how did you find DUPIXENT? Kathy, we'll start with you again.

Well, I had surgery that helped to reduce my nasal polyps, but over time they grew back. So, that's when my specialist recommended DUPIXENT as an add-on to my current treatment. Before I started DUPIXENT, I told my doctor about all the medical conditions I had and medications I was taking.

So, my doctor and I talked about the potential benefits and risks of treatment, including those common side effects such as injection site reactions, and some serious side effects, including allergic reactions that can sometimes be severe, eye problems, inflammation of your blood vessels, and joint aches and pain.

Last question, did you have any initial concerns when first hearing about DUPIXENT? Mark.

When I first heard about DUPIXENT, I was getting ready to have a third surgery. I was in need of more oral steroids and antibiotics. I'd built a good relationship with my doctor, so when they suggested DUPIXENT, I trusted their recommendation.

I think I was nervous because—because it was a biologic drug, and I didn't know what a biologic drug was. But, you know, I did research on my own, and I talked to my doctor a lot. I have a great doctor and good lines of communication with him.

Yeah, for me, I did have some concerns. Like you, I mean both of you, I did the research, and I really relied on the doctor quite a bit. After my doctor explained that it was an injection every other week, I felt more confident about moving forward with DUPIXENT.

Important Safety Information
and Indication

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” right before and during treatment with DUPIXENT.
  • are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known whether DUPIXENT will harm your unborn baby.

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 CRSwNP 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. DUPIXENT can cause allergic reactions that can sometimes be severe. Stop using DUPIXENT and tell your healthcare provider or get emergency help right away if you get any of the following signs or symptoms: breathing problems or wheezing, swelling of the face, lips, mouth, tongue, or throat, fainting, dizziness, feeling lightheaded, fast pulse, fever, hives, joint pain, general ill feeling, itching, skin rash, swollen lymph nodes, nausea or vomiting, or cramps in your stomach-area.
  • Eye problems. Tell your healthcare provider if you have any new or worsening eye problems, including eye pain or changes in vision, such as blurred vision. Your healthcare provider may send you to an ophthalmologist for an eye exam if needed.
  • Inflammation of your blood vessels. Rarely, this can happen in people with asthma who receive DUPIXENT. This may happen in people who also take a steroid medicine by mouth that is being stopped or the dose is being lowered. It is not known whether this is caused by DUPIXENT. Tell your healthcare provider right away if you have: rash, chest pain, worsening shortness of breath, or a feeling of pins and needles or numbness of your arms or legs, or persistent fever.
  • Joint aches and pain. Some people who use DUPIXENT have had trouble walking or moving due to their joint symptoms, and in some cases needed to be hospitalized. Tell your healthcare provider about any new or worsening joint symptoms. Your healthcare provider may stop DUPIXENT if you develop joint symptoms.

The most common side effects in patients with chronic rhinosinusitis with nasal polyposis include injection site reactions, eye and eyelid inflammation, including redness, swelling, and itching, sometimes with blurred vision, high count of a certain white blood cell (eosinophilia), trouble sleeping (insomnia), toothache, gastritis and joint pain (arthralgia).
