Staying on treatment

If you've already started on FASENRA, there are some things you can do to maximize your treatment plan:

  • It’s important to continue your treatments and keep track of your treatment schedule, even if your asthma is under control. Remember, eosinophilic asthma is a chronic condition that will not go away.

  • After your third dose of FASENRA, you will start receiving your treatments every 8 weeks. Have you given any thought to what you'll do with all that time between appointments? Get back to doing those things you enjoy. But remember to schedule your appointments and maintain your 8-week schedule.

  • Talk to your healthcare team to learn about how best to manage your asthma. And, if you haven't already done so, sign up for Fasenra 360. This will allow for you to get helpful tips on how to get the most out of your treatment and also includes dose reminders.

APPROVED USE

FASENRA is a prescription medicine used with other asthma medicines for the maintenance treatment of asthma in people 12 years and older whose asthma is not controlled with their current asthma medicines. FASENRA helps prevent severe asthma attacks (exacerbations) and may improve your breathing. Medicines such as FASENRA reduce blood eosinophils. Eosinophils are a type of white blood cell that may contribute to your asthma.

FASENRA is not used to treat other problems caused by eosinophils and is not used to treat sudden breathing problems. Tell your healthcare provider if your asthma does not get better or if it gets worse after you start treatment with FASENRA.

It is not known if FASENRA is safe and effective in children under 12 years of age.
