We have been hearing A LOT about the new FDA Approved Lilly and Incyte's OLUMIANT® (baricitinib) drug.
We would like to start a discussion here on Alopecia World with people who have tried it, are trying it, or considering trying it. This is a place you can discuss both success as well as side-effects and objections to trying the drug. Hoping this form will help people with alopecia make more informed decisions.
A place that hopefully we can get real users’ comments and reactions. Maybe uncover some things that your doctor never told you about the drug, good or bad. Upload your photos, videos, anything you think the community should know about Oluminant.
Or perhaps you just want to keep your eye on Oluminant, let this be the place.
JOIN THE GROUP TODAY TO KEEP UP ON THE DISCUSSION
According to Lilly, ” Eli Lilly and Company (NYSE: LLY) and Incyte (NASDAQ:INCY) announced
that the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has approved OLUMIANT® (baricitinib), a once-daily pill, as a first-in-disease systemic treatment for adults with severe alopecia areata (AA), available as 4-mg, 2-mg and 1-mg tablets.1 The recommended dose is OLUMIANT 2-mg/day, with an increase to 4-mg/day if treatment response is inadequate. For patients with nearly complete or complete scalp hair loss, with or without substantial eyelash or eyebrow hair loss, consider treating with 4-mg/day. Once an adequate response is achieved on 4-mg/day, the dosage is to be decreased to 2-mg/day.1 OLUMIANT is not recommended for use in combination with other JAK inhibitors, biologic immunomodulators, cyclosporine or other potent immunosuppressants.”
