Reviews for Amevive to treat Psoriasis
"Amevive was a true miracle! I have had psoriasis for 26 years. It was always kept under control until 2 years ago I had a severe outbreak. Most of my body was covered with psoriasis, my back (neck to waist) was the only part not affected. I had psoriasis on the bottom of both feet, palms of both hands, and head also. I was in severe pain, blistered, swollen, chills, and slight fever. To sit I had to pack myself with pillows, and to lay down was almost impossible. I was given Amevive, 1 shot per week for 12 weeks. The 1st shot I noticed improvements. Every shot more spots cleared. By the 12th shot I was COMPLETELY clear with NO psoriasis. There results lasted for over 1 year. Miracle is the only thing I can say for Amevive."
