For Plaque Psoriasis "I had psoriasis on both legs from knees down , both elbows , hands & scalp . After second injection of Ilumya I am now 90 % clear with no side affects . I have tried Otezla but after a year it stopped working . All the creams etc had no affect so here’s hopping that Ilumya is my miracle."

For Psoriasis "I had tried all the creams & all the biologics available. My palmoplantar pustular psoriasis, inverse, & plaque resisted Everything. Then Ilumya was released by the FDA. My post psoriasis has improved IMMENSELY after 5 months. The plaque has improved , the last to go is the inverse psoriasis which is always a battle. Hopefully we're getting there - w a with remission of it all. The only problem I have with Ilumya is it does not treat psoriatic arthritis so that had to be dealt with separately."

For Psoriasis "I’ve had psoriasis for over 30 years and have been poster child for medication both internal and external. First breakthrough came with Enbrel. It cleared me from head to stomach and then stopped. Went to Humira and Stelara with no good results. Then I went to Taltz and it just about cleared me up but did get a lot of side effects. Hands broke out to shortly after starting. Dermatologist in the challenge of completely trying to clear me moved me to Ilumya. I have had 3 injections now and no improvement. In fact several spots have now come back. I suspect on next visit he will move me to a IL-17 drug next."

For Psoriasis "Was on Cimzia for 5 years. Have severe flare of psoriasis (Psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis). Doctor changed me to IIumya. Bad side effects of diarrhea, severe fatigue, runny nose, congestion. Too ill to leave house for several days after injection. Two weeks later still severe fatigue, runny nose chest congestion. Seems like dosage way too strong for me. Psoriasis has not improved at all yet. Will refuse any further treatment with this medication"

For Psoriasis "I researched all medications for my psoriasis for a long time before deciding to go on biological therapy. Ilumya dose is one every 12 weeks after two starter doses. I liked that the most. Four shots a year. I'd tried all of the creams with no results. I really didn't want to take biologics because of side effects. I'm so glad I did though. Ilumya has worked wonders for me. I'm 95 percent clear. So glad I gave Ilumya a try!"
