I'm starting my Skyrizi injections tomorrow morning. I was wondering what you all do for that 2 hours while the needle is going? I've never done anything like this before, so it's all new to me. Can you please give me some ideas how to pass the time? Thanks!

Most infusion centers also have television. Your dose maybe different than mine, my infusion took 1 hour and then had to wait 20 minutes before I could leave in case I had a reaction.

Thanks! Yes, I've already asked and it's been showed that my infusion will take 2 hours. I think I will be taking a book with me when I go and will keep you updated.

My infusion only took a little over an hour when all was said and done! All has gone well with Skyrizi too, am looking for my second one this next week 6/6. Do, know that in my third week my dose seems to be weakening and some symptoms are showing back up. Not as bad so far though. Those of you who are on it. I am wondering if after your third infusion, that they increase the strength? Or, does it usually stay the same spread out for 8 weeks instead of 4?
