How do I apply for the Skyrizi patient assistance program?

We make it as easy as possible to apply for the Skyrizi patient assistance program. The first step is to complete our enrollment application. Tell us about any medications you are taking, including Skyrizi. We will also ask for details about your healthcare provider, insurance and your household income.

We will work directly with your healthcare provider to prepare your application documents. Once we have received the signed application and supporting documents, we will submit them to the patient assistance program on your behalf. Our service continues once you are enrolled in the Skyrizi patient assistance program and we will automatically request your Skyrizi medication refills for up to 1 year.

What is Skyrizi?

Skyrizi is a medicine prescribed to adults who have moderate to severe plaque psoriasis.

Plaque psoriasis, often just called psoriasis, is an inflammatory autoimmune disease that affects your skin. It causes patches of abnormal skin to form, called skin plaques. If you have moderate to severe psoriasis your Doctor may have prescribed Skyrizi to you. It is a prescription medication that reduces how much inflammation your immune system can trigger, helping to clear your skin.

You take Skyrizi by injecting it under your skin (subcutaneous injection) using a pre-filled syringe. Your Doctor or another medical professional will show you how to do this. Skyrizi is usually injected once a month for two months, then once every three months after that. Your prescribing Doctor will tell you how much Skyrizi to use and how often.

Skyrizi active ingredients

The active ingredient in Skyrizi is called risankizumab. It is a type of antibody protein that has been designed to specifically target and deactivate an immune system protein that causes inflammation.

One of the ways your immune system triggers inflammation is by releasing interleukin proteins. Interleukins are created and released by your white blood cells, they then attach to the outside of certain cells in your body (such as skin cells), triggering the cells to begin processes that cause inflammation.

When you take Skyrizi, the risankizumab it contains attaches to the interleukins released by your white blood cells. This blocks the interleukins, stopping them from attaching to skin cells and triggering inflammation. In turn, this limits how much inflammation your immune system can cause in your skin, reducing the severity of your plaques and clearing areas of your skin.

Skyrizi side effects

The most common side effects caused by Skyrizi include:

  • Headaches
  • Fatigue
  • Injection site reactions: swelling, itching and pain at the site of injection
  • An increased risk of upper respiratory tract infections (including nose, throat and sinus infections)
  • An increased risk of fungal skin infections

In rarer instances Skyrizi can cause more serious side effects. These include an increased risk of serious infections such as tuberculosis as well as  severe allergic reactions to the medication.

Skyrizi drug interactions

Skyrizi can interact with other medications. When this occurs it can change how Skyrizi and the other medications work. It can also make some side effects more likely. Tell your prescribing Doctor about all drugs you are taking, particularly:

  • Any other treatments you have for your psoriasis
  • Any vaccinations you are due to have or have recently had

Skyrizi warning and precautions

Skyrizi is not suitable for everyone. Do not use Skyrizi if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient risankizumab
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Skyrizi
  • Are under 18 years of age

Talk to your Doctor before using Skyrizi if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Skyrizi
  • Have tuberculosis or have recently been around someone who has tuberculosis
