Should I follow a treatment plan to prevent psoriatic arthritis-related fatigue?

ANSWER

Follow your treatment plan. Take your medications as prescribed to ease inflammation and pain. That should minimize fatigue. Set reminders on your phone so you don’t forget to take them. Let your doctor know if you feel side effects. Don't adjust the dose or stop taking them on your own.
