  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for psoriasis)
  • Side effects
    Mild (redness of skin (erythema))
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Somewhat hard to take
Dosage: 0.2 g Daily
Advice & Tips: It is hard to space out the treatments daily to twice a day with enough time in between. I see a noticable difference between waiting 10 to 12 hours between applications and doing one in the late evening (10:00pm) and another when I wake up (at 6:00am).
Cost: < $25 monthly
Side effects: redness of skin (erythema)
