DUPIXENT is an injectable medicine called a biologic that is FDA-approved for the treatment of moderate-to-severe eczema (atopic dermatitis) in adults who are 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.
DUPIXENT is injected under the skin (subcutaneously). After an initial dose of two injections (600mg), DUPIXENT is taken as one injection (300mg) every other week. You and your healthcare provider will decide if you and/or your caregiver can give the injections. You and your caregiver should receive training on the right way to prepare and inject DUPIXENT prior to injecting. If you miss a dose of DUPIXENT, give the injection within 7 days from the missed dose, then continue with the original schedule. If the missed dose is not given within 7 days, wait until the next scheduled dose to give your DUPIXENT injection.
