Comment:
I began using Amevive as soon as it became available and it's been the most effective treatment I've ever used. I like it better now that I'm able to self inject (those weekly office visits anger employers). My psoriasis began at age 19 and had rarely been in remission until about age 40.

Comment:
I have a severe case of psoriasis covering more than 80% of my body. I have had three courses of Amevive with excellent results at the end of the 12 week course.
