STELARA® is a 0.75 mg/kg, 45 mg, or 90 mg injection given under the skin, with a small needle. When you begin treatment for your psoriatic arthritis, you’ll receive your dose at weeks 0 and 4, and then receive a maintenance dose every 12 weeks. Your healthcare provider can give you the injection, or you (or a caregiver) can give the injection at your home after you have been trained properly.* You have a choice in how you receive your psoriatic arthritis treatment, and your rheumatologist can help you decide which option is right for you.
*If your rheumatologist decides that you or a caregiver may give your injections at home, you should receive training on the right way to prepare and inject STELARA®. Do not try to inject yourself until you or your caregiver has been properly trained by a healthcare provider.
