I have psoriasis that mainly affects my elbows as well as PsA in my joints. This PsA is pretty new to me, though I've had psoriasis for years. My doctor wants to put me on stelara. Has anyone taken it?

Hello @Bettyctis‍, thank you for opening this discussion! Let me tag some other members who can possibly share with you!

Hi everyone, how are you doing?

Have any of you been prescribed Stelara for your PsA? If so, what has your experience been? Has it helped? Have or did you have any side effects?

@Bettyctis I've been on more than a few meds for mine (Enbrel, Celebrex, etc.) and Stelara has worked the best for me. I started feeling better after the first injection. It takes a while to take full effect, but other than that I have no complaints!
