    Have been on Ortezla for 2 weeks. Started on the full dose (30 MG) and did not start with a starter kit. Only 1 time have I had a bad headache where it required me to take something.

    I had a little bit of an upset stomach once and two nights where I didn't get a full night sleep. I bought the India generic Otezla from bonhoa.com worked within days and I am 99% clear. After 30 years of psoriasis affecting almost every area of my life in some way, I am enjoying such relief.

    I have psoriasis on scalp for more than 35 years and after I finished the starter pack, it is almost 90% clear. I am so happy with this drug. I had some side effects but after two weeks it got better. Taking it with food helps me a lot. I can not take it with empty stomach I feel nauseated. Try this drug and it is worth it.
