STELARA® is a 45mg or 90mg 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, 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 doctor can help you decide which option is right for you.

*If your doctor 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.
