I have been on Otezla since August. It is the inly drug I’m aware of that does NOT impact your immune system AND has not been linked to Cancer diagnoses later. It’s a rough start with the initial side effects but then those goes away and your skin just clears up like magic!! I swear it is truly amazing for your skin psoriasis! Just make sure you sign ip foe the copay assistance card and you will get it free.

Biologics are worth a try for sure. I know the injections sound scary but its not as bad as it seems, they come in a special pen form that makes injection easy and relatively painless. My personal opinion is that its a small price to pay for getting your life back. Good luck to you.
