Does Otezla Make You Very Sick?

Does Otezla Make You Very Sick?

I was recently diagnosed with psoriasis and I have some sores that I can't reach with the cobetasol cream. My dermatologist told me about Otezla but she said you can get very sick from it. I am afraid to take it. Does anybody have experience with Otezla and did it make you very sick? Did it help clear your plaque psorasis?

Since we have a tendency to develop tolerances to meds after a certain length of time, it's good to hear someone on Otezla for five years and doing well.

Otezla And Cosentyx

Otezla And Cosentyx

I have been on otezla since the last of March or April. I went to see my dermatologist today, and she didnt' like the results from the otezla, so she wants me to try Cosentyx. Wondering if that will work any better? And, anything I should be careful about?
