A stressful time Margaret. My psoriasis started when my husband was dying. I was 48. I have it everywhere too. In fact, I was in treatment and living in the hospital with my husband when he died. Stress has a large impact for sure. I've been off and on, never clear, but sometimes at a level, I can deal with. I hope you get there too. Cheers, contact me anytime. I'm not on here very much but I will get back to you.
I took Acitrentin for about 4 years. Shortly after I had cholesterol issues and elevated blood pressure. Then my enzymes became an issue with my liver. Stopped taking and got rid of my liver enzymes. yey! Overall I don't think it helped a lot if at all except in the beginning possibly. I really hope it works for you. Yeah!!
I had some CBD cream that I used as an experiment for someone who was making it. It worked extremely well. But it was too expensive for me to continue with. 70+ percent of my body has been inflamed for about 9 years, give or take. So it takes too much coverage to afford. But yes, I think it does help.
Been on this since February or so. I didn't get a lot of the side effects other than I have to eat quite a bit prior to taking it. I feel a bit off for a half hour or so after still, but eating helps a lot. Yup, the weight loss without trying is a real thing. Not complaining about that! Not so sure it's working anymore, but summer is my worst time, so I'll stay on a while longer. Hope it works for you.
Hi Mark; so does the the big M keep your P under control? My Derm has been pushing me towards this for a few years now. My other go-to's are failing. I've been avoiding this for about 8 years now. Since the very beginning of my first outbreak. My first Derm said under no circumstances take that. I don't have him anymore because I had to go to treatment as an emergency and my Dr changed. I've been told I have to have a liver biopsy every 3 months if I take it.... don't like the idea of that....
Just giving blood is probably okay. I take a medication for my P that disallows my giving blood. I feel like an outcast as I used to do that. I have to wait for 3 years to give blood. My Question is... what the heck they are subjecting us to if we can't even give blood ... for a very long time. Peace. xo
