Can Anyone Give Me Pros And Cons Of Plaquenil For Psa?

Can Anyone Give Me Pros And Cons Of Plaquenil For Psa?

Which works better Sulfasalazine or Plaquenil ? Are they in the same class? Looking for pros and cons.

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

I have Psa with no skin disease. I have tried both. My gut could not tolerate the sulfasalazine. Plaquenil did not help me much at all.

Does Anyone Have Itching But No Rash? I Take Plaquenil For My Psoriatic Athritis.

I have uncontrollable itching especially after i shower but no rash. I also take Plaquenil and didn’t know if that could be causing it

You could try moisturizing more and see if that helps. I have a lot of pain on my scalp but no obvious psoriasis there. The pain is worse in the winter when the air is dry. I think it must be some… read more

Does Anyone With PsA Suffer From Sporadic/widespread Joint Pain?

Does Anyone With PsA Suffer From Sporadic/widespread Joint Pain?

I'm newly diagnosed but my arthritic pain is primarily in my lower back and hips. I have severe morning stiffness and sometime can hardly walk after sitting for a while. I also have sciatic pain down my right leg to my foot. These pains I've experienced everyday for the post 3 years. (Just started treatment yesterday with methotrexate) Now in occasion I seem to have sporadic pains in my hands and feet. There's never any swelling or redness they just hurt for no reason at all. Most recently I… read more

Has Anyone Here Taken Biologics While Pregnant?

Has Anyone Here Taken Biologics While Pregnant?

I have severe psoriasis & psoriatic arthritis. I started taking Cosentyx in January & it’s been amazing so far. All of my psoriasis is flattened & lighter in color, & my arthritis has had major improvements too. However, my husband & I are trying to conceive. It terrifies me going off of Cosentyx once I learn that I’m pregnant, but I also don’t want to do anything that could potentially risk the health of a future baby. Advice?

Anyone With Psoriasis And PsA, Do You Only See One Doctor, I.e. Dermatologist And A Rhumetologist, Or Do You See Both?

Anyone With Psoriasis And PsA, Do You Only See One Doctor, I.e. Dermatologist And A Rhumetologist, Or Do You See Both?

Currently I'm only seeing a Rhumetologist because the medication is supposed to work on both the skin and joints. I am wandering if I should see a dermatologist, as well, because I have the psoriasis affecting my face, among other places. Any suggestions? Thank you. 🤕

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

I see both, but haven't seen the Rheumatologist since I was diagnosed with the Psoriasis. I have been on Plaquenil for 22 years. So I take it, that is something that could be adding to the Psoriasis… read more

Starting Methotrexate

Starting Methotrexate

I'm starting MTX tonight. I was wondering if anyone has any advice?
I have a prescription for zofran (anti-nausea), should I take some before I take my dose? Or load up with cannabis (legal in my state and I have a medical card).

I'm starting on 5mgs and tapering up to 15mgs. Not sure the first dose is going to be terrible, just nervous.

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

Shawna: I have heard that from a lot of people (that their sense of taste changes after starting MTX), I think it's actually a pretty common side effect.

Luckily the first dose went well (but we are… read more

Is Anyone Taking Cyclosporine?

Is Anyone Taking Cyclosporine?

I am in the process of failing taltz, after failing Cosentyx, Humira, Enbrel, methotrexate etc., etc. etc. My P has been out of control, seriously out of control. My hair is gone due to scalp P, had it in my ears so bad both got infected and my left ear canal swelled shut. That caused bronchitis. The coughing from the bronchitis caused Costochondritis. Holy Cannoli, this last couple of weeks has sucked. Lol. Had open sores where inverse P split open in groin and underarms. Backs of both hands… read more
