Hi everyone

It looks like I may be starting a new biologic that's just been approved by NICE for psoriasis arthritis.

Has anyone started this? It's called secukinumab.

Every other drug I've taken (Humira, MXT, sulfasalazine, hydroxychloquine, ) hasn't helped and has given me severe side effects so fingers crossed.......

    I'd never heard of this and I'm fairly sure no-one on the forum has mentioned it before (though you could always do a search if you like). I checked it out and it seems relatively new - initially intended for RA but seems to work better for AS and PsA. I hope it does for you :D
