What could the Autoinjector mean to your patients?
NUCALA (mepolizumab) is indicated for the add-on maintenance treatment for patients 6 years and older with severe eosinophilic asthma.
NUCALA is not indicated for acute bronchospasm or status asthmaticus and should not be administered to those with a history of hypersensitivity to mepolizumab or excipients in the formulation.
What does the Autoinjector mean to me? A lot, actually.
Ever since my doctor recommended at-home administration of NUCALA for my severe eosinophilic asthma, there have been some nice changes.

Instead of spending time driving to the doctors for my injection, I’m spending time on the driving range.

Instead of sitting in the waiting room, I’m sitting in my living room.
And instead of planning an appointment for my injection, I’m planning a weekend downtown.
[background writing noise]
I wasn’t sure about it at first, but once my doctor showed me how to use it... I was all for it.

Herpes zoster has occurred. Consider vaccination if medically appropriate.
Do not stop systemic or inhaled corticosteroids abruptly.
Treat pre-existing helminth infections before starting NUCALA.
