I have been on sterlara for 2 years now. I have never used a medication that has provided me with 99% clearance. The only trouble is fatique, high liver enzymes count, and a vitamin d deficiency. My dermatologist says it isn't related but I am not taking any other medications and she deems untrustworthy. In the process of finding a new dermatologist.

Since my partner has been using Stelara (about 3 years now) his psoriasis has cleared dramatically. However I have experienced severe mood swings in him, very irrational, paranoid and depressed during the week - 10 days after injection. And a constant fatigue. IS this the experience of other Stelara users? If so, any advice on managing these side effects?

I have had psoriasis since age 20. Very severe at times. first steroid creams and ointments, then progressed to tar and photo therapy, then to methotrexate. Methotrexate was effective but along came enbrel and Dr. had me switch.
