I started Stelara back in October 2013. I've had three injections altogether at this point. The most helpful thing I can tell you is that I never review anything, ever. However, Stelara has worked so well for me that I had to say something about it. I've had psoriasis since I was about five years old, and I've tried basically every treatment available.

I have had psoriasis for the past 35 years. After trying every drug from ointments to enbrel with no success my doc put me on stelara. The results were amazing after only 2 months so I put up with the side effects and my skin was plaque free for about a year. Gradually it started to come back again all over and the shots were discontinued. One year later and my skin is the worst it has ever been!

Enbrel worked well for a while and then I guess I developed an immunity but it started to reappear. I have been on Stelara since December/January (Loading doses) and then just had my next injection this past week. At approximately 1 month (just prior to the 2nd lo ... Show Full Comment
