Ask your doctor about NUCALA

As you learn about NUCALA, you’ll realize that it’s a different kind of asthma medicine. It’s an injection you receive every 4 weeks in your doctor’s office or take at home, not a steroid or an inhaler. NUCALA helps prevent severe asthma attacks and helps reduce the use of oral steroids when added to your asthma medications. Your results may vary.
