Received my first two shots of Skyrizi

My Dermatologist gave me my initial double dose of Skyrizi yesterday. I was previously on Stelara, whose efficacy was waning. Let's hope Skyrizi does the trick for a few years! I'll update as necessary.

  1. Hey ! Nice to hear from you again. I'm looking forward to following your journey with Skyrizi. Hopefully it will work well for you and bring you some relief. Best of luck! -Catherine, Community Moderator

    1. I hope you will do great! I have heard a lot of great things about it.

      1. Well, it's been 2 months after my initial double dose of Skyrizi. I have to say it's working. Slowly working. But there's no question it has nearly eliminated nearly all psoriasis patches. So I'm a happy camper. Sadly, I got Shingles a month after my shots. After a month on Valtrex, it too is fading, but not yet gone. Perhaps my misery is at last going to disappear completely!!!!

        1. Hi @teeceetx so glad to hear that Skyrizi is working for you even if it is slow. Any improvement is always a good thing. Sorry to hear about the shingles. Did you have to go back to see your doctor when shingles happened or have you had it before. Here's hoping that you will see the clear skin you want. Vickie W., Team Member

        2. Really appreciate you keeping us updated, ! I'm hoping the shingles will clear up fully soon and you'll continue to see improvements in your psoriasis with the Skyrizi. Warmest wishes, -Catherine, Community Moderator

      2. First time for shingles. But it has almost completely faded now. I go for my next Skyrizi shot on this coming Tuesday. Will keep ya'll posted!

        1. Fingers crossed @teeceetx!! Jill, Team Member
