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. My motivation for the question is the fact that I have taken 7 of them and I am starting to run out of them… read more
Recently started on biologics after a couple of years trying various topical and systemic treatments.
Tried Cosentyx first. Made zero difference after initial 5 weekly starter doses.
So Dermatologist has now switched me to Taltz. Just took first starter dose this week.
I note that both drugs interact with the same interleukin (IL-17A).
Does anyone here have any knowledge or experience of switching from Cosentyx to Taltz? How likely is it that Taltz will do what Cosentyx didn't?
My psoriasis is spreading on my fingers, and appearing in some different places why.
I have been on Tremfya for almost 2 years and have had a recurrent sinus infection since last October...literally a year ago. I have been on several antibiotics and it does NOT fully go away. As if that's not bad enough, I have had shingles probably 5 times since starting Tremfya, and the pain and stiffness in my lower back (from deterioration) has become much worse. My daughter helps me with my pants or shorts most days because I can't just bend to do it myself. It's as if my injections just… read more
Sounds like the medication has stopped working. You should check with your doctor.
I have blurring and watering, burning eyes, and am prone to eye infections.My eye specialist says that he thinks psoriasis is causing pressure on my eyes and the tear ducts are inflamed.
He says the eye its self looks like sand paper. I use two types of drops an antibiotic( tobramiacyn) and an allergy drop( florometholone ), along with an ointment ( tobrex) I have good days and real bad eye days mostly bad.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!!!
I try most cream going don’t work
I have been on taltz for 5 weeks now I have took 4 injections and I am amazed my psoriasis is just about away and belive me I looked as if I had been burned in a fire from the neck down there wasn't one clear bit of skin in the end it was very painful itchy and drove me to think bad thoughts cause I couldn't take any more I will put some pics up this was the worst bit and I now have my own skin back so taltz worked for me and I hope it works for others
Has anyone using Tremfya had cold sores (herpes simplex) triggered? On the medication guides it says it’s a side effect. I just started Tremfya and Sure enough a few days later I got the wrist cold sore ever! I am curious if others have experienced the is too. I asked my doctor and she said it’s not a side effect even though on all the medication guide it clearly states it is.
On the commercial, it says people taking Tremfya saw clearer skin in 16 months and extreme improvement after 5 years. Any idea why it takes so long?
