What is Skyrizi?
Skyrizi (risankizumab) is prescribed for the treatment of plaque psoriasis in adults. Plaque psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that causes raised red patches covered with thick silvery patches to develop on the skin. These plaques itch and can cause a burning sensation. They most commonly appear on the elbows, knees, scalp, and lower back. The treatment goal is to clear the skin and prevent future flare-ups.
Skyrizi is administered via subcutaneous injection, either by a medical professional in your doctor’s office or, once you’ve been properly trained, by self-injection at home. The usual treatment regimen is two starter doses, with the second one administered four weeks after the first. After those starter doses, you continue with one dose every twelve weeks.
What Does Simplefill Provide?
Plaque psoriasis is uncomfortable and unsightly, and many sufferers are reluctant to appear in public unless their plaques are covered by clothing. Stress is known to exacerbate plaque psoriasis, and not being able to pay for the medication needed to manage the condition is nothing if not stressful!
By finding prescription assistance for people with plaque psoriasis, Simplefill eliminates that source of stress in addition to providing symptomatic relief.
How does Skyrizi Work?
Skyrizi is a monoclonal antibody that mimics natural immune system proteins. It attaches to interleukin 23A (IL-23A), a protein that, when produced in excess, is believed to cause excess inflammation in the body and contribute to plaque psoriasis. By reducing the level of excess IL-23A in areas of inflammation, Skyrizi helps clear the skin of plaques.
