I was diagnosed early with psoriatic arthritis because bilateral dactylitis is pretty much diagnostic of this. I began taking Otezla about 16 months ago. The first month was a bit rocky with nausea and a little vomiting, but this disappeared and nothing happened with my inflammation. As nine months past I began to notice a lessening of my pain and after the ninth month was completed it was gone ...

I have been on this medication for 3 months. I am still experiencing frequent Diarrhea, extreme Nausea, migraine headaches, hair loss, and increased joint pain, with new pain and swelling in joints previously not affected. I am staying on it 4 more weeks to give it additional time to possibly increase it's effectiveness. I am only continuing to try to deal with this daily/nonstop pain and swell...

Considerable increase in depression, non-stop stomach pain which worsened when I over-ruled the pain and actually attempted to eat, followed by terrible diarrhea. Medicare insurance refused to cover without taking some other oral med (probly worse) prior to Otezla. Depression got quite bad at a couple points, not on the verge but a helluva lot more than normal level. Not in love with the thought of giving myself shots but it may become necessary. If you have Medicare, Otezla won't help w/cost. I hope this will help someone else see this drug is certainly NOT the miracle medicine the TV commercials put it out there as being. If you are reading this it's highly likely you are having some of these probs as well. Good luck to you, you're gonna need it...

I have tried this twice now for severe Psoriasis on my scalp (minor spots on body) - 1. After the third day of use, my skin felt like it was on fire. 2.I have never had a depressed day in my life, but was beginning to sleep all day. On the 3rd day of my boyfriend finding me sleeping all day - I told him I would be happy to just die, but then no one would be around for my dog. MY DOG KEPT ME ALIVE - OTEZLA almost KILLED me. Second time trying it months later, got doses in half to wean myself on it, see if I could get results. 1. Started with tremors - my arms and hands, got exceedingly worse. 2. While driving my tremors become almost seizure like. I had NO control of my body or car. Had to quickly pull over and almost killed someone because I could even think about looking, my hands would NOT stay on the sterring will. 3. Got home - driving 20 miles an hour - in case I had pull over again. At home, can't stop what my family calls full body shakes. Then about every twenty minutes go into an "Episode" (my family again) which was full on convulsions. No one would leave my side. 4. Stopped taking Otezla and flushed system with water - like 15-20 bottles a day for two days. Convulsions are almost gone. OTEZLA IS AN EVIL DRUG - SHOULD NOT BE ON THE MARKET

Works wonders very quickly. In a month I’m around 60% clear after over 10 years of nothing ever working for me. However, you need to be willing to suffer from moderate to severe GI issues and make sure you monitor your mental health closely. But the suffering through these side effects has been worth it to me.

I have been on this since October 2020. Dr started me with 3 starter packs to ease into full 30/30. I gave scalp psoriasis only. is My scalp at first felt less itchy, but now going on 4 months it is worse then itâ??s been in a long time. My scalp is actually painful. A patch by my ear is worse then ever. My stomach issues never subsided. If I wasnâ??t working from home, I could never take this due to the sudden and quick need to go to the bathroom. I am also very stuffy with ear ache for past few months and growing soreness in neck and shoulders and now wondering if this could be related. Seeing dermatologist this month but may just stop drug. I am so disappointed - I thought for sure this would help.
