For the last year I have been on a range of treatments for my psoriasis. Starting with phototherapy, then methotrexate and currently ciclosporin. Nothing has really worked. Starting biologics soon. I am suffering from extreme tiredness and a lot of headaches. Does anyone else suffer from this and can offer any help?
I was on Humira for several years and it worked well until I became immune to it. Now on Embrel and it has almost cleared any remaining lesions. When travellling to the States, a 12 hour trip, I carry my injections in little freezer bag, with a copy of my prescription inside the bag.
I'm on Humira 40mg injection fortnightly...My Psoriasis had completely gone within a month of using it and that was 6 years ago now.
I am on Metho and remicade at this moment. I started at metho (like 15 years ago) then moved to just enbrel, then to humira, then humire with metho kick...now my latest is the metho/remicade. i just keep moving up the steps of the next better drug. they do work for me, but i do get amune to the drugs and have flair ups.
I'm currently on methotrexate and I'm constantly tired. I have no energy and my get up and go has got up and gone! Its worse when I pick up bugs which I do all the time due to reduced immunity. Sometimes I just want to sleep for a week but I am the only breadwinner in the family so the pressure is quite high to keep going. Probably a good thing!!
