Effective Treatment Options?

Hello,
I am pretty new to all of this! This ugly disease never affected me much until I had my last child 2 years ago and it has been a major struggle ever since. So, I am currently on Humira and Prednisone, but it is not very affective for me and I'm in need of some guidance please?!

Prednisone will ALWAYS make it worse after you stop. You shouldn’t take that, its doesnt mesh with psoriasis.

I’ve been dealing with psoriasis’ psoriatic Arthritis since I was 30. That’s after 3 kids and an emergency hysterectomy. I’ve been on soooo many meds, shots & creams. I’ll go into remission for awhile. Usually in summertime. But it ALWAYS comes back at some point. 🥺 I’m currently on Methetrexate injections and steroids creams. I also go to tanning bed for a few mo at a time. I also use the Infa-red bed. That helps a lot. A lot of experience for me has been live & learn what helps. I wish you the best.

You can find info about Lucraderm on Youthfarms.com. Or scroll through the posts of those on the site who say that it has done wonders for them. It’s a powder that you put in juice or smoothie daily...

I agree with you on the “ Biologic front”. It’s been my experience that they either help the skin or the joints but have not found one that works for both and sadly they only work for a limited time.
The relief is wonderful while it lasts but it would be so nice to get both under control.
I had great results from Enbrel for a few years and then with Cimza for about a year but it seems like the effectiveness of Cimza is only lasting for about 2 weeks now. Will be seeing my Rheumatologist in July and going to see if there is another possibility as well as something to help the plaque psoriasis...
Seems like we are all searching for relief!
I see that quite a few people have found relief from Lucraderm and those that use it say it has helped significantly, in fact I may be the only one who didn’t get good results but have other health issues that may have gotten in the way. I’d say it’s definitely worth trying...

I am on Humira and it has helped with the plaques but not a ton with joint pain. It's seems to be one or the other with biologics, at least that is what I believe. I cannot take prednisone but believe that joints would be better if I could. Sadly the risks outweigh potential benefits.Are you struggling with joint pain or plaques the most?
