OTEZLA: FDA Approved Drugs and User Comments

User Comments:

For Plaque Psoriasis “After trying other treatments for 22 years, to no avail, my derm gave me a few starter packs when Otezla first came out. Within 6 weeks my skin was much better. Within 4 months my psoriasis was GONE. I kept taking for 3 years after a war with my insurance co (they finally covered it, thanks to my determined doctor who saw the results) and then decided to pull back to one a day instead of two afraid they’d stop paying when I had to switch insurance companies. I even went on vacation for 2 weeks and forgot my pills entirely. My psoriasis still didn’t come back and hasn’t despite the fact that I take maybe 3 pills a week. I think it may have actually cured me! This is truly a miracle drug for those whose systems can take it. And I never had side effects worse than some running to the bathroom issues in the first months. God bless whomever discovered Otezla!!”

For Plaque Psoriasis “By the time I finished the starter pack (2 weeks) I was already showing signs of improvement. Two weeks later I was 99% clear. Little bit of loose stools, but no depression (so far). I’ve cut back to one tablet per day, but too early to see if it comes back.”

For Psoriatic Arthritis “I have been on Otezla going on my 4th year I had plaque psoriasis and swelling of joints I was nauseous for maybe 2 weeks when I started, my ring finger was a size nine and now it’s a size five that’s how much swelling has gone down for me. All my plaque was completely gone by the 3rd month which included my whole head my ears and unmentionable parts! I don’t have depression or any other side affects for me this drug is amazing!”

For Psoriatic Arthritis “When ointments are not as effective as they used to be, I started researching other treatments for Psoriasis. It’s a constant battle on my head and wearing black is becoming more difficult. I’m not considering injection therapy so Otezla seemed the perfect solution. Side effects began on day 2 and started to subside after 2 weeks. However, the tension headaches got worse and I stopped treatment after 2 1/2 weeks. I saw little impact on my psoriasis, but I probably didn’t take it long enough. However, my Psoriatic Arthritis was completely gone, which of course is acting up again. I so wished this would have worked for me.”

For Psoriatic Arthritis “Was prescribed and took for 8 months for plaque psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis. After a month began to notice a big reduction in plaques but only mild relief in pain. After 4 months began to experience depressed feelings and random dark thoughts while nothing had changed in life circumstances. Decided to go off when scared myself with thoughts of crashing my vehicle while driving. However, be warned the psoriasis plaques is worse now than before I took the meds and the joint pain is back. Would not recommend.”
