Skyrizi (risankizumab) for Plaque Psoriasis: “Oct 2020 I took my first starter dose of Skyrizi. Within 1 week I noticed my skin stopped flaking and started cleaning up. 4 weeks now my skin is almost cleared up. My body was 80% covered with plaque psoriasis. Nov 2020 I will be taking my first full dose. I am very happy with the results. The only side-effects I have noticed was urinating more than normal.”

Skyrizi (risankizumab) for Plaque Psoriasis: “Been taking Skyrizi for more than a year now after failing on several other biologics, systematics for plaque psoriasis. Also went onto this medication with high blood pressure and heart issues and long covid symptoms. It cleared me within 4 weeks and I would say has the least amount of side effects out of any other biologic systematic I have taken. It also seems to control other misc inflammation and I have not become immune to it quickly unlike other medications, not a single lesion has returned I am 100% clear from having 20% severe coverage prior. I did get pneumonia recently unfortunately for the 4th time but antibiotics cleared it within a week, you do need to watch for infections if you are not getting better on your own see a doctor. This will happen on any biologic or systematic as it's my 4th time going through that. After what I have experienced, Skyrizi benefits outweigh the risks and in my opinion would be the least risky internal treatment for psoriasis.”

Skyrizi (risankizumab) for Psoriasis: “this drug after close to 18months or more made no difference in low back guttate psoriasis dermatitis is which appeared as an allergic reaction after bad food and another drug. I've been given many drugs in the same class: enbrel humira skyrizi otezla consentyx they're all equally ineffective and only made my skin hurt. The dermatitis the MD was at war with was not my normal immune system over reacting no, The allergic reaction was to another drug or a bacteria in food. The only thing that puts the low back dermatitis closest to get guttate psoriasis calm down is two weeks of water fasting and avoiding the other mess provoking breakout.”

Skyrizi (risankizumab) for Psoriasis: “I have guatte psoriasis about 70% of my body is covered, I just started skyrizi and got both the starter injections in my stomach at the doctors office, I have noticed some burning when I pee, some tiredness, flushing, I know my body has to get used to this medication I’m glad I have some time off work for my body to adjust to this Skyrizi. The patches on my arms and legs are starting to dissipate after only 4 days.”
