dithranol (Anthralin) for Psoriasis?!?!

I guess many doctors don't prescribe this because it stains the skin and clothing, but i was wondering if anyone had good sucess with it? I'm using something right now that works okay, but my spots always come back. I hate how I have to keep treatment up constantly because I don't want my PS to reappear. Does Anthralin just clear it up while you use it, or does it go away for a while (at least 6 months)? I know PS can't be cured, and I can't afford Embrel and such, but it drive my confidence into the ground when I see new spots all the time. Please let me know.
