Re: Newbie--and has psoriasis
The "MABS" are disease modifying drugs recently developed for several disease conditions such as arthritis and psoriasis. * link to commercial website and related info removed by hb-mod, moderator * These drugs are not "cures"
because the main problem with psoriasis is your genetic makeup that cannot be changed, but you would live a reasonable life style again and discard your long sleeves and wear shorts again. Contact your doctor to discuss other issues with these drugs. The number one problem is its effect on your immunity and infections. You cannot use it if you have a chronic infection and test and monitoring has to be done whiles on this. Not heard of effects on child birth, but again check it out at HUMIRA website and discuss with your doctor.
Its working for me now b/c I inject every other week as opposed to twice weekly like others drugs, and above all my patches are gone except one stubborn patch on my legs.
