Biologics For Psoriasis

Biologics For Psoriasis

I have taken many biologics (7 in total). Currently I am clear using Skyrizi. My body responds well to biologics but not surprisingly they lose effectiveness over time for me. My question is; has anyone ever went back on a biologic that they had previously failed on and had success with it? I have asked multiple dermatologists and have asked other forums but nobody seems to have tried it.

Aaron, I too used several biologics, Cosyntex, Tremfiya, slews of creams & now I too use Skyrizi.

Maybe a suggestion of some of the medication lotions can work?

I went back on tremfya after surgery with s six month lapse between. Psoriasis was starting to come back after all this time. I was pleasantly surprised. So far better result compared to Humera or cosentix. I was losing hope. I keep my fingers crossed about this biologic

No, I haven’t returned to one that was no longer working. However, I had to stop Tremfya for heart surgery and was not on it for four months, my skin did not break out until the very end of that time. I resumed the medication with excellent results! I’m just hoping that this continues! Amazing results and now I am comfortable without the profuse itching.

Hi, did you ever go back on a biologic you had tried before? How did it work the second time you tried it?
