Preparing for your first treatment
Adding a medication can feel like a big step. That's why we want to make sure you have the support and information you need to keep your treatment journey on the right track.
As you prepare to begin treatment with NUCALA, you may have a lot of questions. You can download the Doctor Discussion Guide, sign up for your 'Guide to Your First Treatment' below, or grab a notebook to write your questions down. Bring what you've completed to your appointment to allow an open dialogue with your doctor.
What to expect during your first treatment…
At Your Doctor's Office
- Your healthcare professional will prepare your injection.
- You will receive an injection just underneath your skin (subcutaneously).
- After your injection, you may be asked to stay in the office so your doctor can monitor you for any allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis. Sometimes serious allergic reactions can occur hours or days later.
- Your doctor will provide you or your caregiver with information on injecting, including how to properly inject and education about monitoring for any allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis. Sometimes serious allergic reactions can occur hours or days later.
- You will inject yourself underneath your skin (subcutaneously).
- If you have your first injection in your doctor's office, you may be asked to stay in the office so your doctor can monitor you.
