  • Nucala Overview

    Nucala is used along with other medications to control and prevent symptoms (such as wheezing and shortness of breath) caused by asthma. Controlling symptoms of asthma helps you do your normal activities and decreases time lost from work or school. Mepolizumab works by reducing swelling (inflammation) of the airways in the lungs to make breathing easier. Mepolizumab is also used to treat a certain immune system disease (eosinophilic granulomatosis with polyangiitis-EGPA). It helps to control and prevent symptoms (such as wheezing, shortness of breath, runny nose, facial pain) caused by the disease. It works by reducing swelling (inflammation) of the blood vessels and also decreasing the amount of certain white blood cells (eosinophils) which may cause the disease. Nucala must be used regularly to be effective. It does not work right away and should not be used to relieve sudden asthma attacks or breathing problems. If an asthma attack occurs, use your quick-relief inhaler as prescribed.

  • How to Use Nucala

    Read the Patient Information Leaflet and Instructions for Use if available from your pharmacist before you start using mepolizumab and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist. Nucala is used by injection under the skin into the upper arm, thigh, or abdomen. Nucala is used as directed by your doctor, usually once every 4 weeks. The Dosage of Nucala is based on your age, medical condition and response to treatment. If you are using the syringe/autoinjector, take it out of the refrigerator before use. Let it warm up to room temperature for at least 30 minutes. Do not heat Nucala any other way, such as by heating in the microwave or placing in hot water. Do not shake Nucala. Before using, check Nucala visually for particles or discoloration. If either is present, do not use the liquid. Before injecting each dose, clean the injection site with rubbing alcohol. Change the injection site each time to lessen injury under the skin. Do not inject into areas of skin that are tender, bruised, red, or hard. If you are regularly using a corticosteroid medication, you should not stop using it unless directed by your doctor. Some conditions (such as asthma, allergies) may become worse when the drug is suddenly stopped. If you suddenly stop using the corticosteroid medication, you may also have withdrawal symptoms (such as weakness, weight loss, nausea, muscle pain, headache, tiredness, dizziness). To help prevent withdrawal, your doctor may slowly lower the dose of your corticosteroid medication after you begin using mepolizumab. Tell your doctor or pharmacist right away if you have withdrawal. Use Nucala regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, mark your calendar when you need to use it each month. Learn how to store and discard medical supplies safely. Tell your doctor if your condition does not get better or if it gets worse.

  • Nucala Precautions

    Before using mepolizumab, tell your doctor or pharmacist if you are allergic to it; or if you have any other allergies. Nucala may contain inactive ingredients, which can cause allergic reactions or other problems. Talk to your pharmacist for more details. Before using Nucala, tell your doctor or pharmacist your medical history,infection due to a parasite. Before having surgery, tell your doctor or dentist about all the products you use (including prescription drugs, nonprescription drugs, and herbal products). During pregnancy, Nucala should be used only when clearly needed. Discuss the risks and benefits with your doctor. It is unknown if Nucala passes into breast milk. Consult your doctor before breast-feeding.

  • Nucala Misdose

    If you miss a dose of Nucala, use it as soon as you remember. If it is near the time of the next dose, skip the missed dose. Use your next dose at the regular time. Do not double the dose to catch up.

  • Nucala Side Effects

    What are Nucala side effects?

    Side effects are physical, mental or emotional symptoms which occur in addition to or outside of the desired effect of a therapeutic treatment such as an over-the-counter or prescribed drug or medication.

    Side Effects of Nucala

    The side effects of Nucala may vary in number and intensity for many different reasons. Factors such as age, weight, gender and ethnicity may influence the side effects of Nucala. Also, an individual’s state of general physical health and seriousness of the disease or illness as well as an increase or decrease in dosage may lead to side effects. Further, side effects from Nucala may also occur as a result of an interaction with certain herbal supplements, foods or drinks.

    Prescription drug side effects can be serious and may cause patients to stop the treatment. However, when side effects from the use of a prescription drug, such as Nucala, do occur a patient should consult their physician. A physician may prescribe an additional treatment in order to control the symptoms or an adjustment in the dosage may be made. In addition, changes to diet, exercise or other lifestyle activities may help to lessen the side effects of Nucala.
