Humira Losing Effectiveness

Humira Losing Effectiveness

Looking into either Taltz (ixekizumab) or Cosentyx (secukinumab) Biologic.

Which one worked for Psoriatic Arthritis?

Also curious if it stinks while taking.

Any feedback much appreciated. Thank you.

I have been on taltz for 5 months now and it cleared my psoriasis but it only helped my psoriatic arthritis a little so now my dr is ordering me skyrizi to try. I wanted to try enbrel but he says it really doesn't help much with the skin. I hope skyrizi helps if not i told him i want to try enbrel because my skin isnt as much of a problem as my joints. My psoriasis isnt really as bad. It only covers my legs and feet but the psoriatic arthritis is causing me pain in my whole body and some days the pain is so bad in my feet that i can barely walk and at night the pain in my shoulders neck elbows and hips are so bad it makes it hard to sleep.

You asked if it stings.....well i would call it more of a burn...it is the more painful injection and my dr even warned me and said its the most painful of all of the biologics but if it works then its worth it.. it only burns for a few minutes but im doing my last one in a few days because im in the process of getting my insurance preapproval for skyrizi next

I haven’t taken either because of being allergic to the biologics. However I can tell you that every medication works different for everyone so all you can do is try it to see if it works for you. Wish you all the best. Take care
