Skyrizi is a medicine used to treat adults with:

  • moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis (a disease causing red, scaly patches on the skin) who require systemic treatment (treatment with medicines given by mouth or by injection);
  • active psoriatic arthritis (a disease that causes psoriasis and inflammation of the joints) when treatment with one or more medicines known as disease-modifying anti-rheumatic drugs (DMARDs) has not worked well enough or causes unacceptable side effects;
  • moderate-to-severe Crohn’s disease (a disease causing inflammation of the digestive tract) when conventional or biological treatments do not work well enough or cause unacceptable side effects.

When used for psoriatic arthritis, Skyrizi can be given alone or with another medicine, methotrexate.
