Without medical insurance I can no longer afford the enbrel that I was taking. I can't sleep thru the night often and am finding it hard to even hold a glass or pen in my grip.

At the top of this page there is a Drugs A to Z tab. I just looked at it and I scrolled down to where it said drugs to treat psoriatic arthritis and there are a lot of different drugs listed. Maybe this will help. I would check with my doc or pharmacist before mixing to many and before taking something new. I wish you well. kimmie1

You may also want to ask your Drs office and/or pharmacy if they know of any programs available for patients with no insurance. Some offer a sliding scale fee ( you must qualify financially) that is much less than you would have to pay originally without your insurance. Some pharmaceutical companies offer medication delivery to your Dr. and you can pick it up at the office, after you have the paperwork filled out and qualify. Not having insurance is such a burden. And being in pain makes it seems like no one cares. If you can't make those calls have some one you trust do it for you, in your prescence preferably. Keep your chin up because we do care! Please let me know if this info was useful, so that I may better help others, and continue to help you.
