    I've had severe guttate psoriasis since I was age 8. I've tried so many things from over the counter to various prescriptions including steroid injections, methotrexate, humira and now finally stelara.

    My wife died from using Stelara on April 1st 2014. She developed Melanoma due directly to the use of Stelara. Run, run away from this drug. 30 months after beginning the use of Stelara she is gone.

    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. Stelara has, hands down, worked b ... Show Full Comment

I started out with the creams, then to Humira. It cleared me up to about 5% body coverage after a few months, but was the most painful shot I have ever taken.
