Let's Talk Psoriasis Treatment!

There is so much to say about psoriasis and the treatment journey that comes with it. There are so many options and so much research to be done - it can be overwhelming!

How many different treatments have you been on for psoriasis? How long do you wait to see if a psoriasis treatment works before researching other options? What advice would you give a friend struggling to find successful treatment?

Consider this a forum to share or vent about psoriasis treatment!

  1. I've had Otezla, Stelara, Skyrizi, and am now awaiting approval for Ilumya. I switched over to Medicare and the co-pay card for Skyrizi would no longer work. So not wanting to pay $4,000+ for each injection, I'm switching to Ilumya at the advice of my dermatologist. Skyrizi was working great, the short time I was on it. In this interim, I have developed half a dozen small spots, which I've been treating with Bryhali cream. It seems to be doing well. I'll let ya'll know how Ilumya works for me.

    1. Hi , it's nice to hear from you again. Thank you for sharing here. I'm sorry to read that there have been some issues with accessing Skyrizi since switching to Medicare - I know you were having some good results with it. Hopefully Ilumya will be just as good, if not better! Please do keep us updated. Wishing you the best! -Catherine, Community Moderator

    1. Hello , I have been on so many treatments for my psoriasis that I have lost count. But, I'm seeing that each year that goes by the treatment for psoriasis is getting better and better. I have been on medication that has taken up to 6 months before I saw any improvement and as short as 3 months. But one thing is for sure if your pain, swelling, and skin haven't improved or got worse in 6 months, you might need to talk to your doctor about something else. Diane, Team Member
