Psoriasis Meds & One Kidney

Psoriasis Meds & One Kidney

Hi There!

I am currently on my 6/7th month of extract laser therapy. It's been helping but I have a really stubborn inverse psoriasis. I was wondering if there are any medications that are safe if you only have one kidney. My dermatologist is really leery to put me on anything but going to the derm twice a week for laser therapy is taking a lot of time from work and life and results are okay - but sllllowwwww.

Any recommendations or anyone else had this problem?

Sulfasalazine

Sulfasalazine

My gastroenterologist put me on 2 Sulfasalazine tablets 500 mg each. 4 times a day for ulcerative colitis. I still have diarrhea. Could it be harming my liver and kidneys?

A MyPsoriasisTeam Member said:

I personally had stomach issues on sulfasalazine and had to go off it. Not sure if it impacts the organs.
