Stelara is an immunosuppressant medicine that is used to treat the following conditions: 
  • Plaque psoriasis in children and adults
  • Crohn’s disease in adults
  • Ulcerative colitis in adults
  • Psoriatic arthritis in adults
Stelara contains the active ingredient ustekinumab, a monoclonal antibody that is part of the interleukin inhibitor drug group. Ustekinumab works by recognizing certain proteins that cause inflammation, binding to them, and stopping their activity.  The dosage varies depending on the patient’s weight, and the duration and administration of the treatment depend on the patient’s condition. The prescribing doctor will determine these.

This medication has been prescribed because your healthcare provider has judged that the benefits are greater than the risk of side effects. Many people using this medication do not have serious side effects. 

Precautions

Stelara may lower a patient’s ability to fight infections or may increase the risk of infections. Serious infections, which may require hospitalization, include tuberculosis (TB), and infections caused by bacteria, fungi, or viruses. When you are taking Stelara, consult your healthcare provider immediately if you have any signs of a chest infection, skin infection or shingles.

Decreased activity of the immune system may increase the risk for certain types of cancer. Inform your healthcare provider if you have any new skin growths.

Inform your healthcare provider if you have any new or worsening medical problems including headaches, seizures, confusion, and vision problems. These may be symptoms of posterior reversible encephalopathy syndrome (PRES). If PRES is found early and treated, most people recover.

Serious Allergic Reactions

Consult your healthcare provider immediately if you have any symptoms of a serious allergic reaction such as feeling faint, swelling of the face, eyelids, tongue, or throat, chest tightness, 

A skin rash, shortness of breath or a cough may be a sign of serious inflammation. If it persists, consult your healthcare provider immediately.

Other mild side effects may include:

  • nasal congestion, sore throat and runny nose, upper respiratory infection, sinus infection, bronchitis
  • fever
  • headache, tiredness
  • itching
  • nausea and vomiting
  • redness at the injection site
  • vaginal yeast infections or urinary tract infections
  • diarrhea and stomach pain
  • joint pain.

If these persist or get worse, discuss this with your doctor or pharmacist.

Stelara is used for the treatment of the following conditions:

  • Moderate to severe plaque psoriasis in adults and children who are intolerant of other systematic treatments or haven’t had the wanted results with other treatments
  • Active psoriatic arthritis in adults
  • Moderate to severely active Crohn’s disease in adult patients who haven’t had the wanted results or are intolerant of other treatments
  • Moderate to severely active ulcerative colitis in adult patients who had a bad response, lost response, or are intolerant to other forms of treatment
  • What is Stelara used for?
    Stelara is used to treat Crohn’s disease, plaque psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and ulcerative colitis.
  • Is Stelara an immunosuppressant?
    Yes. Stelara is a monoclonal antibody that is part of a group of medicines called “immunosuppressants.” It acts by weakening part of the immune system, which can be effective for treating disorders caused by overactive immune systems.
  • How does Stelara work for Crohn's disease?
    Stelara contains an active ingredient called ustekinumab, a monoclonal antibody. These antibodies are proteins that can identify and bond to specific proteins. In Crohn’s disease, there are high levels of a protein called cytokine, which causes inflammation; the monoclonal antibodies connect to these proteins, thus aiding in reducing inflammation.
  • Is Stelara considered a high-risk medication?
    Because Stelara is a prescription medicine that affects the immune system, it carries an increased risk of infection. Stelara lowers the immune system thus limiting the body's ability to fight infection, causing a higher risk of infection. It is important to share any past infection, especially tuberculosis, with your healthcare provider before using Stelara.
  • What to avoid with Stelara?
    It is important to stay away from people who are sick or have infections. Also, it is advised to refrain from receiving a “live” vaccine while using Stelara and stay away from people who have recently received a “live” vaccine. It is advised to avoid the risk of viruses of all kinds.
