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."

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."

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."

For Psoriasis "Went into Skyrizi failing every other biologic systematic you could think of before it trying to treat plaque psoriasis and arthritis for 12 years, although it cannot treat the PSA for more than a month per loading dose, Skyrizi not only cleared my skin quicker than the competitors, it also didn't have a severe effect on my existing health conditions unlike the rest. In fact I noticed some of those other conditions improve temporarily, have also been able to enjoy a flexible diet and other bad habits without a single lesion or breakout since starting it, cannot break the effectiveness of this biologic no matter what I eat or drink. I would say based on my experience it is the least risky and most effective thus far and has taught us the IL23 pathway is critical to treating many other autoimmune diseases"

Skyrizi · Taken for 1 to 2 years · March 10, 2022

For Psoriasis "I’ve had psoriasis since I was 8 years old and have done every topical recommendation under the sun. I was on otezla for a few years. Initially it worked well but I had a lot of side effects and then it stopped working at all. I started skyrizi a year ago and cannot be happier. My scalp is clear for the first time in 24 years and all the visual plaques on my skin has resolved. I had no side effects from starting it but have gotten two UTIs (which I have never had before) since being on it."

For Plaque Psoriasis "WOW!!! I have been suffering from psoriasis ever since my first Moderna Covid jab in may 2021. I broke out head to toe in red itchy circles, and my scalp was the WORST! My scalp was shedding dandruff everywhere. I saw 4 different dermatologists and I got many topical treatments and I tried every OTC and holistic treatments, but within 4 days of my first dose of Skyrizi in August 2022 my psoriasis cleared up - 100%. ONE HUNDRED PERCENT. Zero side effects. I’m on my 3rd dose and I’m still 100% clear and I have zero side effects. I am so over the moon happy with this medication. I can finally sleep well at night because I’m not itching. I can finally wear black again. I got my life back. It took a lot of effort on my part to get a dermatologist to finally prescribe me it, but it’s soooooo worth it!"
