I would like to know if people had no side affects or had side affects. I'm wondering about having infections. Also has anyone had weight loss surgery and is taking Stelara?
Yes I have been on it now for over three years and I have very little in the way of side effects, I am a little tired for a few days after my 90mg self injection but apart from that I have had no problems. What I have had is about 99% clearance after 9 years on MTX which got so bad with the side effects I had to stop taking it and I never got above 70% clearance.
I have been in the hospital three times in the last 40 odd years since I started with the P when it was so bad that I had problems even walking and I was covered from top to toe.
Stelara has been fantastic with almost complete clearance starting from about 6 weeks after the second injection at four weeks.
I have been on Stelara for over five years. I am 90% clear. The drug has made me have a chronic cough, had Penomnia and after 5 years I am experiencing the worse side effect ever. Muscle pain, exhaustion, headache to the point I can barely function . This drug is a wonderful drug and I had so much success with it not sure why I had such a bad reaction to my last shot. I had several blood tests done and nothing else is wrong. My symptoms Started 24 hours after my shot. Try this drug it is amazing but be careful it does have some bad side effects
