I have been taking Otezla for about 2 months and I am suffering from severe leg cramps. Has Otezla effected any of you like this? If so, what has helped you with the pain? Thank you for all suggestions! God bless.
I have now been taking 30mg twice a day for about 8 months. I have in this time frame been on other meds such as antidepressants which I am now and will remain off of. Withdrawals were horrible. My cramping is not isolated to just legs. Cramps in my lower jaw under chin, arms, hands, torso, neck, and a different kind of headache that has trumped any migraine Ive ever been medicated for. I hadnt put the two together bluntly because the lists and any reactions listed seem to be completely down played. I am currently trying to find out if I will need help to stop this med. I have always reacted in increased pain and skin worsening with any dose of ibuprofen. My regular M.D 's go to has always been ibuprofen. Even though I have pain meds that do not have ibuprofen in it. 4 months after starting otezla I had almost complete skin clearance. One migraine, one dose of Excedrin Migraine and I entered into a flare that has made skin that was and new places appear with avengence and have not become better again. Joint differance was never achieved. You know things arent good when your Rheumatologist says he too is NOT HAPPY this far out with the result.
