Treatment for psoriatic arthritis
Good afternoon folks,
i will keep this short and sweet, ish.
I am Male in my late 30’s, i was diagnosed with Psoriatic Arthritis 3 years ago, since then ive tried a few treatments mainly Otzela apremilast tablets which worked wonders the first 2 years to the point i stopped taken them as I stupidly thought i didn’t have Arthritis, 2 weeks later i had a big flare on my hands and went straight back on the Otzela. Unfortunately for me since going back on this medication it has not stopped the arthritis spreading into my feet(mainly toes). My Specialist has decided its now time to try some other medication called Sulfasalazine then probably move onto methotrexate as the last option in tablet form for me before trying biologics.
i just wanted to reach out to the community and see who has all been on these meds and if they had much success? Trying to understand my likelihood of success for a better quality of life and also just gain valuable knowledge and experience from everyone living with this very annoying illness!
Thank you in advance.
