Anyone tried Skyrizi

Good morning. I was recently diagnosed with psoriasis. It has been getting worse since last November and is now pretty much all over my entire body. The itch is about to do me in. My dermatologist wants to put me on Skyrizi. I’m just waiting for all the insurance stuff you have to go through. Has anyone here been on Skyrizi and has it worked...any side effects. I pray something works for me because I feel like a freak when I go out. So happy to find this forum for others that are suffering from this horrible psoriasis.

  1. @Bailey10, I hope some community members can chime in (Skyrizi is pretty new!). In the meantime, we have some info here if you'd like to check it out:

    1. Hello,
      Normally dermatologists recommend staying on the medication long term to avoid flairs.
      I take my second dose tomorrow but have already seen improvement after my first round of shots.
      I’m thankful for some relief and hope the same for all of us on this portal.

    2. Yes that is interesting

  2. Thank you Victoria. I did read the link you provided about Skyrizi. Guess I'll be the guinea pig...if I every get to have my first round of shots. Still waiting on the process to be complete.

    1. Hi there ,

      Did you use skirizi injections for your psoriasis, please advise

      How’s it’s works on psoriasis and do you have any side effects, my dermatologist prescribed me for these injections, please help me and gave me advise

    2. I felt tired for a few days after my 1st dose but it was worth it after the improvement I’ve seen already!

  3. I too am waiting for insurance to ok skyrizi. Nervous about it because I have asthma but psoriasis have taken over my body and life. Hoping it works. Anyone tried it ?

    1. Guess we'll be going through it together. I'm nervous about it too. Don't have any other health issues, and praying I don't have any horrible side effects. Just found out a couple days ago that this medication has two injectables each time. UGH. I applied for the assistance program late yesterday. They send something to my doctor and said it will take about 5 to 7 days to get approval.

  4. Just started with my first dose (2 injections = 1 dose) a month ago and I am nearly 100% clear! The only possible side effect (I say possible because it may not be skyrizi related) is a bit more vivid and active dreaming. Not a bad thing because they’re just average dreams, not nightmares. I love the feel of my smooth skin again! 😀

    Regarding insurance, mine didn’t cover the first dose but I was immediately enrolled in the Skyrizi Complete program and assigned a nurse ambassador who came to visit me in person. My first dose was completely free and they could not have made things any easier on me! I’ll post a link to pictures I uploaded below. I can’t say enough about this amazing new medication and I wish you all the same wonderful results!

    PS The needle for the injection is so very skinny that I hardly felt it go in, another plus!

    1. Thank you for posting this! I had my first injection yesterday and I am looking forward to the rapid results you speak of!

    2. That is very informative.
