Q:

7/9/2013
Patient with frequent need for Firazyr. Didn't tolerate Cinryze. But also with bad allergic asthma in spite of Symbicort 160 and montelukast. Is it ok to also use Xolair if she needs Firazyr twice a month.

A:

Thank you for your inquiry.

There is no contraindication to my knowledge to the administration of omalizumab to your patient who is requiring frequent Firazyr.

Thank you again for your inquiry and we hope this response is helpful to you.

Sincerely,
Phil Lieberman, M.D.
