Combination therapy of biologics with topicals, phototherapy, and/or traditional systemics is commonplace and may enhance efficacy including speed of onset and maintenance of response. Moreover, biologics can permit discontinuation or dose reduction of traditional systemic agents. Conversely, traditional systemic agents may permit lowering of the biologic dose. Rather than changing biologic agents, combination therapy should be considered in circumstances of inadequate efficacy or relapses/flares with monotherapy.
