Single mama directing my little California circus with a bit o' psoriasis thrown in for levity.
I have taken MTX for PA initially cleared up the P but had to stop taking it bcos it made me feel so ill . Tried again with injections but P returned and also made me feel ill .. so stopped medication and started using a lotion which cleared up most of P , just have a couple of small patches occasionally .
Ann Marie I've been taking it for about 4 years now. Rheumatologist checks my liver count every 6 months. So far been OK.
I've managed to stop taking the Anti inflammatory pills I also took for years.
Use if needed, which is not often now and see a Chiropractor every 6 weeks who also needles and I keep very active
I used it awhile, then it quit working as well. My dr then upped it to 8 pills a week. After about the 3rd week, my hair started coming out like crazy so she took me off it and gave me samples of Otezla. That worked amazingly but like to never got it from my insurance. Finally got it thru the company. I couldn't do any of the biologics cause I have had Non-Hodgkin Lymphoma. First time since getting psoriasis my skin is almost cleared up completely.
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.
