Getting CINQAIR

  • CINQAIR is given as an intravenous infusion, or IV. A small needle will be put in a vein in your hand or arm to allow the medicine to go directly into your body.
  • Because it is given through an IV, only a healthcare provider can give you CINQAIR. You may receive your dose at a doctor’s office or an infusion clinic.
  • You will receive 1 dose of CINQAIR every 4 weeks. Each infusion takes about 20 to 50 minutes. You will be monitored by your healthcare provider during and after the infusion for any signs of an allergic reaction.
  • Everyone’s dose of CINQAIR is different. It’s personalized based on how much you weigh. Your doctor will determine the right dose for you.

What is the most important information I should know about CINQAIR?

What is CINQAIR?

CINQAIR is a prescription medicine used with other asthma medicines for the maintenance treatment of asthma in people aged 18 years of age and older whose asthma is not controlled with the current asthma medicines. When added to other medicines for asthma, CINQAIR helps prevent severe asthma attacks (exacerbations) and can improve your breathing. Medicines such as CINQAIR reduce blood eosinophils. Eosinophils are a type of white blood cell that may contribute to your asthma.

  • CINQAIR is not used to treat other problems caused by eosinophils.
  • CINQAIR is not used to treat sudden breathing problems.

It is not known if CINQAIR is safe and effective in children less than 18 years of age.

Do not receive CINQAIR if you are allergic to reslizumab or any of the ingredients in CINQAIR.

See the Full Prescribing Information for a complete list of ingredients in CINQAIR.

Before receiving CINQAIR, tell your healthcare provider about all of your medical conditions, including if you:

  • are taking oral or inhaled corticosteroid medicines. Do not stop taking your corticosteroid unless your healthcare provider tells you to stop. This may cause other symptoms that were controlled by the corticosteroid medicine to come back.
  • have or have had cancer (malignancy).
  • have a parasitic (helminth) infection.
  • are pregnant or plan to become pregnant. It is not known if CINQAIR will harm your unborn baby. Tell your healthcare provider if you become pregnant during your treatment with CINQAIR.
  • are breastfeeding or plan to breastfeed. It is not known if CINQAIR passes into your breast milk. You and your healthcare provider should decide if you will receive CINQAIR and breastfeed. Talk to your healthcare provider about the best way to feed your baby if you receive CINQAIR.

Do not stop taking your other asthma medicines unless your healthcare provider tells you to.
