Discontinuing biologics

Has anyone successfully come off a biologic and is now using only local treatment?

I have been taking enbrel for 4 years and am considering discontinuing it for several reasons: expensive, hard to travel on it, side effects including weight gain, worsening of chronic depression.

Has anyone successfully come off of biologics and controls it now with local treatments?

I’ve come off of biological meds several times. I use topical or take acetrentin with UVA/UVB treatments

There are other new biological treatment. I suggest to try ( Humira, Stelara...)
