Does anyone know how long Tremfya stays in your system. I’ve been on it about a year but haven’t taken my recent dose because I’m concerned about covid19. I can’t find anything online about how long I stay immunosupresse.

I am on tremfya and cant answer your question. But contact your medical provider or dermatologist nurse and ask. I am not going to stop mine. But I understand you may be worried

Hope you get sorted

Thanks Heather. I spoke to my nurse a couple of weeks ago and at that time there was no specific guidance but if I was concerned it was up to me. So I didn't take it. Its been a wonder drug for me but if I have to miss a couple of doses for a bit of peace of mind so be it.

Take care
