What is Nucala?
Nucala is a prescription medicine used with other asthma medicines for the maintenance treatment of asthma in people aged 12 years and older whose asthma is not controlled with their current asthma medicines.
Nucala helps prevent severe asthma attacks (exacerbations). It works by reducing blood eosinophils. Eosinophils are a type of white blood cells that may contribute to your asthma.
- Nucala is not used to treat other problems caused by eosinophils.
- Nucala is not used to treat sudden breathing problems.
It is not known if this medicine is safe and effective in children under 12 years of age.
