Posted Tue 4 Jul 2023 20.24 by Steview A P sufferer for over 30 years, through good and bad times.
I doubt many in the UK will have been prescribed this yet. Although other countries approved earlier than UK so may be some who post on here.
I was reading up on this and for UK anyway I think the recommendations are to be prescribed once ther systemics and phototherapy have been tried. Maybe some time before we get some actual patient reviews.
It is definitely good news that another alternative has been approved.
I have been on Sotyktu for almost 2 weeks. I noticed a difference after only 1 dose. The itching/scaling improved almost immediately. The color of my spots went from angry red to a soft pink in just under 2 weeks. There aren’t many testimonials available online, but I hope more people get the chance to try this drug. In my case it’s a miracle drug with no noticeable side effects.
I’ve been taking Sotyktu for 2 weeks now for plaque & guttate psoriasis but so far no improvement ,& no side effects .. Hopefully more time still needed… Has anyone else had any success with this biological?

The recommended "test" period for Sotyktu is 4-6 months. Please check back regularly and post your experiences, good or bad.

Are you prescribed it yacht?

Lizziep -- No, not on it.
Continuing to monitor the new wave of daily pills. They seem easy to take, but with fewer brutal side-effects than the "old" pills (like MTX).
Only part that concerns is their potential effect on the gut microbiome. Are these "new" pills going to save the skin, but wreck the gut?
Meant to say I’ve been taking Sotyktu ..
Very much improved after 3 months with no side effects . The angry redness has gone & slowly with each week the skin is becoming less & less red, fading to a very light pink & disappearing fast . My legs which were the worst on my body tho greatly improved seem to be taking a little longer

Thanks for posting, Dinkyminky.
In % terms, overall, roughly how much improvement have you seen? Is there 100% clearance, 80%, 50%, 25%, 10%?
Any minor or major side-effects? Stomach, bowels, muscles, etc.?
