I hope LDN will be added to the list of treatments here. It has been effective in treating a range of auto-immune conditions, including psoriasis.

I have done some research on LDN, buprenophine and Suboxone. The problem with using these drugs lies with doctors unwilling to prescribe off label for non-addicts and insurance companies unwilling to pay for the drugs. Buprenophine, in the Buprenex and BuTrans forms, has gotten FDA approval for long term moderate to severe pain management.

These drugs offer a safe alternative to pain management, especially for people that cannot take NSaids for whatever reason. This is again an example of government and insurance companies interfering with the ability of doctors to treat patients with the best therapies.

I have not taken or used any of these medications, but I would love to see these added to the line of defense and treatment of my PsA.
