From this study (2 months ago):
Xolair given for 4 months, 1/month, with no problem. Increased to 2/month, and developed hives within 24 hours. Got another shot of Xolair in 2 weeks, hives increased, along with several granuloma annulare spots. It has been 8 weeks since my last injection, and the hives and granuloma annulare are a bit better, but still present.
