Biologics And Infections

Biologics And Infections

I have been on Otezla for 9 months and it has worked well, scalp psoriasis is gone. My Medicare Part D insurer (and the other 7 in my area) will not cover Otezla, insist that I must use biologics. I cannot afford to pay for Otezla on my own, and do not qualify for help. However, the biologics warn about using them when subject to infections. I suffer from chronic inflammation of the esophagus, and frequently have dry cough, sinus drainage
Considering going without any drugs, going back to… read more

Humira Losing Effectiveness

Humira Losing Effectiveness

I have been on Humira for about 8 months. At the start it worked well, but for the past 2 months I have had flare ups. Has anyone else had the problem of a biologic that has stopped working? If so, what do you think caused it?
I'm seeing my Derm this week. I hope I can get some answers.

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

Some Humira patients actually form antibodies against the drug. Your rheumatologist can run a humira antibody blood test to see if that is why you are no longer responding to it.

Has anyone tried Enbrel, then moved on to Humira and still not seeing a big difference? Anybody on Stelara after not having any luck with the other two?
