Has anyone tried Stelara or another similar treatment?

I’m on here to try to help my wife. She’s been a sufferer since she was a teen. Recently she went off the medication she has been on for quite a while (infusion every six weeks), and tried Cosentyx, with horrible results. We ended up at urgent-care Friday and she was down most of the weekend with a migraine, felt hot but had no temp, etc.

Has anyone else tried Stelara or something similar with good results, and no bad long term side effects? ANY help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you!

    Hello @jimbo220242 I just wanted to circle back around and see how your wife is doing? Did she settle on a treatment plan? I’ve been on Stelara for 3 treatments now and I’m still waiting to see if it officially helps or not. I haven’t had too much in the way of side effects so far. I hope your wife is managing well and you are taking care of yourself as caregiver as well. 🙂 -Leanne, Psoriatic-Arthritis.com Team Member

    I have been on Costentyx for almost a year now with no side-effects…or, perhaps just not yet. Unfortunately, this can’t help you. Different people react differently to different meds. I’m very sorry you didn’t have luck with this one. I hope your wife finds something that works soon.

    Hi Jimbo220242,

    Thanks for your question. I’m so sorry to hear that your wife has struggled with PsA for so long. Have you had a chance to poke around our site a bit? There are lots of comments from all different experiences in our forums, especially the treatments forum here: https://psoriatic-arthritis.com/forum/treatment-issues/. Each person responds differently to each different treatment option and there isn’t a one-size-fits-all approach—we sure wish there was! I also wanted to share this section of our website with you; it’s about managing symptoms naturally. That’s not for everyone but, if it’s something about which you’d like more information, this is the place to look: https://psoriatic-arthritis.com/managing-symptoms-naturally/. Please let us know how things continue for your wife. We’re here to support you both.
