Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

As a patient diagnosed with psoriasis and currently undergoing treatment with Skyrizi, I am immensely grateful for the advancements in medical science that have provided us with such therapeutic options. However, I would greatly appreciate your advice in addressing a few queries I have concerning the medication's efficacy and the probable duration of treatment. Could you elaborate on the expected efficacy of Skyrizi in managing psoriasis symptoms over the course of treatment? Are there specific indicators that I should look out for its effectiveness, such as a reduction in plaque severity, itching, or improved skin appearance? And what is the typical treatment duration for Skyrizi for patients with psoriasis? Also, should I expect any fluctuations in effectiveness or changes in treatment response over time while on Skyrizi?

Welcome to icliniq.com.

I understand your concern.

How long has it been since you have started on them? The response will depend on the severity of your psoriasis. It will definitely take around a month to start seeing differences. Also, try making lifestyle changes, which will aid in quick response. You will need to take them for a long time, but keep checking your blood counts as advised by your dermatologist. Are you on any topical medicines as well?

Please answer the questions for me to better understand your problems.

Kind regards.

Same symptoms don't mean you have the same problem. Consult a doctor now!
