Recently I was recommended by my asthma doctor, to start getting the Nucala injection. I had severe asthma as a child, grew out of it at 18 and then it returned a few years ago at the age of 62. I have been on allergy shots for many years and continue to get them. My asthma symptoms are under control but, only while I'm on 10 mg. of prednisone daily along with Breo inhaler.
I'm nervous about getting the Nucala injection because of the possible side affect of shingles. I had chicken pox as a kid and I have not had the shingles vaccine.
Since Nucala is new, I want to know about its success rate thus far and if shingles has been reported after starting Nucala or after getting the shingles accident?
