An Alternative to Topical Prescription Treatments
DUPIXENT is an injectable treatment given under the skin (subcutaneous injection) that targets a source of unwanted inflammation that may be a source of your prurigo nodularis (PN).
WHAT YOU SHOULD KNOW
DUPIXENT can be given by your doctor or self-administered at home. If your healthcare provider decides that you or a caregiver can give DUPIXENT injections, you or your caregiver should receive training on the right way to prepare and inject DUPIXENT.
In addition to the training from your doctor, explore the resources available in the Injection Support Center that may help you become more comfortable with injections.

The recommended dose is specified in the table below. Use DUPIXENT exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider.
