I Cannot Find A Medication That The Side Effects Are Not Real Scary.

I Cannot Find A Medication That The Side Effects Are Not Real Scary.

I have trouble getting the Doctors to talk with me about meds. They just give me a prescription and expect me to take it. I have Psoriasis all over my body and Psoriatic Arthritis. My nails are also a mess.

You look up every med you're given and you have a right to decide if you want to take it....look at benefits vs the risks/side effects....just Google any medicine and your info will be there....

The side effects are scary. You have to ask yourself how your quality of life is without meds.

My rheumy sends me home with info on meds she recommends and tells me to decide which one. They all list cancer and infection etc as possible side effects. I have RA and PsA and dr tells me inflammation can be happening in body that you don’t know about until it’s to late (ie heart attack &strokes) so meds are worth risk.
Hard decision and like someone mentioned, you have to consider your quality of life.
