Taltz Side Effects. People with psoriasis have an alternative drug in the form of Taltz which was approved by the Food and Drug Administration early this year.
Does it work? Well, clinical trials prove that it does. From fda.gov:
Taltz’s safety and efficacy were established in three randomized, placebo-controlled clinical trials with a total of 3,866 participants with plaque psoriasis who were candidates for systemic or phototherapy therapy. The results showed that Taltz achieved greater clinical response than placebo, with skin that was clear or almost clear, as assessed by scoring of the extent, nature and severity of psoriatic changes of the skin.
