Enbrel worked great on joints, but not the psoriasis peelings. Been of Mtx since July, this yr, so that can be the problem...Been on Enbrel/Humira..total 8 yrs..these meds sometimes stop working, and we move on to the next new one...Wonder if that yr on Rituxan, didn't work, because they said i had RA all these yrs..and maybe it was always psoriatric..It's hard to distinquish sometimes, if you don't have the skin issues.
So Remicade is the one biologic that is really making skin smooth....but it's wearing off...unlike Humira/Enbrel...which was given more often. I was doing wkly Humira towards the end ofthe 5 yrs on it.
I will have to be my own advocate, and do some research on the other meds for psoriatric. suffer in terrible pain, all the bones hurting, rheummy said can't take plaquenil, will make me red?, or Arava will still affect liver.
It's crazy have to loose some weigh ( but prednisone will make me gain weight)t, but only prednisone will help the severe pain at night. Took another 10mg at 10pm last night..a total of 30mg..and finally was able to sleep 5 hours..When the neck starts getting terribly stiff, and is hard to sleep, thats the point when i get that prednisone out
So, whats the choice, not even a few bones hurting, all of them!...don't take the prednisone..and get 2 hours of sleep...or take it, and have the pain go away!...Then the rheummy will give me 10 reasons why Prednisone is bad for me lecture..What can we do....we need sleep!!
And what a coincidence...the palms start peeling same time as the bones start hurting...Grrrrrr
Just wondered if anyone had some experience with this or thoughts?...Most of the expensive ointments, didn't help that much, just thinned the skin..I even tried Olux-E
