@rashida How frustrating to have had your psoriasis clear up but then flare up the moment you began to titrate.

I added this discussion to the Skin Health and Autoimmune groups.

Below I have linked two previous discussions that are not directly related but that may have valuable information. You might want to read through the posts.

May I ask what your provider said regarding the first injection showing no improvement? Is that common?

Thank you, @erikas! I think the reason for increasing the dose was simply the lower dose was not enough. I’ve been told by the nurse who administers my injections that it will take several weeks to take effect. I am to get these injections every twelve weeks so hopefully by the time I am due my next 90ml dose – in May – I will see some improvement as it will have been six months by then.
