    Best option for Psoriatic Arthritis?

    So guys, I realize that all med options results with differ from person to person. I am being told that Methotrexate [MTX] is the first line of defense for PsA, is this correct please?

    If not, what are the latest treatment options with the least side effects please?

    I’m no expert but it seems MTX works best in combination with Plaquenil. I have recently “graduated” from this combo to Orencia and Plaquenil. Dr is considering adding Arava to this combo as well. He said research shows a combination therapy to be the most effective. Hope this helps

    Thank you for your reply and info. Yes, I am realizing that MTX often needs to be used with another.

    How about any natural remedies? Can you name any that may offer relief?

    You could look into LDN...Low dose naltrexone.
