to Launch Remicade Regimen
Ed, I started
on Remicade today. I had been on cyclosporine for over a year with great
success for the P but not as great on the arthritis. I have psoriatic
arthritis. I recommend the cyclosporine for anyone with P.
Hope the Remicade works as well and also helps the arthritis.
Response: Good luck to you on
the Remicade, Olin — and please keep us apprized of your progress.
We have one excellent report in the archives already: Remicade
Success Story from Rozalie S. The
infusions cleaned up her erythrodermic P.
my greatest success (so far) on cyclosporine — complete clearing.
My PA had been beat back the year before the cyclo while I was on
methotrexate and it didn’t return to anything more than a dull ache
during the months I was on cyclo. Ultimately,
though, my blood pressure started to elevate on cyclo and the returning
dull ache in my knees foreshadowed worsening PA — so now I’m back on
methotrexate and the lesions are returning, too.
Let us know how things go on the Remicade. We are vitally interested. -Ed
