Chronic ulticaria and Xolair

Silvana71 posted:
Hi everyone, I have suffered from chronic ulticaria for the last 11 years. I have done it all from prednisone, Zyrtec, Allegra,Claritin ,atarax, doxipen, tagament,, cyclosporine, singular,anti anxiety meds, just to name a few. I can't say that during any of these treatments that the hives went away. I have gone through endless days with such bad break outs and it made me miserable . I can't be in the sun, or be in windy weather. When the weather changes I have a bad breakout. I gave up sodas, tea, chocolate, anything with trantrazine as an ingredient and many more. At one point in my life they would get so bad that I wouldn't even recognize myself in the mirror. I can go on and on but the reason for this post is that I was approved for xolair as a treatment after studies confirm that it is very effective for chronic hive sufferers. I have had 2 doses so far and I can't explain the wonderful feeling of waking up and going to sleep with no hives. I would recommend xolair for long term patients that have had no luck with antihistamine. It is a struggle to get approved but hopefully the FDA will approve it for chronic hives. Good luck to you all.
