If you're doing everything you can for your severe asthma and it still isn't enough, talk to your doctor about your:
- The times when your asthma symptoms worsened or you experienced an asthma attack (exacerbation)
- Oral steroids
- The times when you had to take oral steroids (like prednisone) to help manage your asthma
- Daily activities
- The times when your asthma interfered with your day-to-day life
Remember to tell your doctor everything you're doing to manage your asthma, and talk about your goals for treating your asthma.
I was fed up with my asthma getting in the way, so I had an honest conversation with my doctor.
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 in your doctor's office every four weeks, not a steroid or an inhaler. NUCALA prevents severe asthma attacks and helps reduce the use of oral steroids when added to your asthma medications. Your results may vary.
It's important to ask your doctor any questions you may have about NUCALA. Download a Discussion Guide to help start the conversation with your doctor.
Talk to your doctor to see if adding NUCALA for your severe asthma is right for you.
