    Hello @lisa79 and welcome to the Community. We are a friendly and supportive group and I hope that will be your experience as well.

    I haven't come across bekuzinumab and it doesn't show up in a search, but may be others have tried it or it may be a trade name for something generic. Anyway I hope that someone gets back to you with some relevant experiences.

    Best wishes

    Do you mean Bimekizumabย  @lisa79 ?

    If so it looks really interesting and very very new.

    I hope you'll keep in touch and let us know how it goes for you.

    Best of luck

    Sorry @lisa79 I hadn't heard of it myself either.

    Just spotted your cat on your avatar. She/he looks just like mine!

    Not the best pic - husband accidentally deleted a whole load ๐Ÿ™„

    this is her when our drive was being done.

    Thank you Ellen. This is the last injection I can try. Tried humira and benepali. One didn't work and other started yo cause nerve damage in foot. And now cosentyx hasn't work. Not having much luck. Also have osteoarthritis in neck.

    Hope you are keeping well Ellen x
