Side Effects To Acitretine-Soriatane.

Side Effects To Acitretine-Soriatane.

My doctor is recommending Soriatane- Acitretine for my hand - feet psoriasis. Anyone have any severe side effects? I’m so nervous about going this route but I can barely walk now. Help

Thanks for the feedback. One of my issues is extreme dryness from plaques…so I did not understand why go on Soriatane to dry it out more?? I dont have the pustules… just dry, cracked and bleeding. So I moisturizer like 5 times a day. It’s already much better!

Thank you! I decided to wait another couple of weeks. Will diligently put a thin coat of cortisone and keep moisturizing to see if that helps. Also at 1/2 point with UV treatments and its finally showing some improvement. I will inquire on the Taltz ! Thanks for the good feedback!

I had same issues and only Taltz completely cleared it for six years now. Soriatane made me nauseous and feeling like I was gonna throw up all day long..only took it for about five days and never again. I’m a Taltz believer. There are Lilly programs that will provide copay assistance or free if you meet income requirements and some other stuff.
