I suffer from Psoriatic Arthritis an the Remicade works fine with my joints, but not on my Psoriasis. Can I start taking Otezla?
First, always ask your Dr. Prescribing the Remicade.
My Derm. Prescribed Otezla, she said no problem with my biological. But before
I started it I asked my Rhuematologist he said it was alright since they work differently
Otezla is made specifically for psoriasis.
I started the med but quit after 3 weeks because I got blistery flares on my scalp that itched and burned. It took about 2 1/2 weeks to get back to my normal flaky scalp. I suppose I should restart it too make sure it was the Otezla... maybe not.
I have PSA. I take both Otezla and Remicade. They are finally both working in sync now. When you get stressed you can tell bc you will slightly blister sure to the PSA but it's not near the same as before. I hope I've been some help!
