About Tezspire

Overview

This medication is used with other medications to control and prevent symptoms of severe asthma (such as wheezing and shortness of breath). Controlling symptoms of asthma helps you maintain your normal activities and decreases time lost from work or school. Tezepelumab belongs to a class of medications known as monoclonal antibodies. It helps reduce swelling (inflammation) of the airways in the lungs to make breathing easier.

This medication 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

Read the Patient Information Leaflet if available from your pharmacist before you start using tezepelumab and each time you get a refill. If you have any questions, ask your doctor or pharmacist.

This medication is given by injection under the skin of the upper arm, thigh, or abdomen as directed by your doctor, usually once every 4 weeks.

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 tezepelumab. Tell your doctor or pharmacist right away if you have withdrawal.

Use this medication regularly to get the most benefit from it. To help you remember, mark your calendar when you need to use it each month.

Tell your doctor if your condition does not get better or if it gets worse.

Side effects

Pain, redness, or swelling at the injection site may occur. If any of these effects last or get worse, tell your doctor or pharmacist promptly.

Remember that this medication has been prescribed because your doctor has judged that the benefit to you is greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects.

A very serious allergic reaction to this drug is rare. However, get medical help right away if you notice any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction, including rash, itching/swelling (especially of the face/tongue/throat), severe dizziness, trouble breathing.
