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

Before treatment

Before NUCALA can be administered, it needs to be prepared by your healthcare professional. You will receive an injection just underneath your skin (subcutaneously), into your upper arm, thigh, or abdomen.

After treatment

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.

What to do prior to your appointment

  1. Confirm your appointment date with your doctor's office.
  2. Plan to wear loose-fitting clothes. Be sure that you're able to easily and comfortably adjust or remove clothing as needed to get to your injection site.
  3. Consider bringing a book, tablet, or something to keep you entertained. Once you receive your injection, you will be asked to stay in the office so your doctor can monitor you for any allergic reactions, including anaphylaxis.
