Patient Helen's experience of having the Mepolizumab injections for her severe asthma


Helen one of our Clinic patients shares with us her experience of having the Mepolizumab injections for her severe asthma. She told us..


"The main benefit for me is no more Prednisone for many months. No hospital admissions and trips to the doctors every few weeks or months. I am able to cope much better at work (as a nurse) and am now able to do long shifts without collapsing in a heap at the end as have so much more energy now. I can take our lovely Labrador for long walks. My husband, Alan, is no longer kept awake with my incessant night time cough. I feel very honoured and grateful to be on this, what can be a life changing medication." Thank you Helen for sharing your story. We are so glad it is helping you and your family.
