Starting Stelara


Sun, February 19, 2017 10:47 PM

Hi everyone. I get my first dose of Stelara via IV this week, I was wondering if anyone had experiences they could share. I'm pretty nervous about taking it-mostly because I hate IVs but, any feedback would be great!

Last year I started remicade with little to no results. So far Ive had 3 Stelara injections and im already starting to see a big difference in my symptoms. I wish you the best of luck!

HI! I also recently started Stelara and am looking for others who have started it and how it is working for them. So far it's been about a month and I've tapered from the steroids, but my symptoms have returned, so going back on a low does of steriods until the Stelara kicks in. Anyone else share their expreiences?
