  • 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)

Feb 14, 2012 (Started Feb 03, 2012)

  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Eczema)
  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Dyshidrotic Eczema (pompholyx))
  • Side effects
    Severe (Easily get sick)
  • Adherence
    Always
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 1 g Daily
Advice & Tips: This medication worked well for what it was prescribed for, but with me having a low immune system and it having a steroid in it I started to get infections under my breast. The only time I get these is when I am on a steroid or I come in contact with Strep. I stopped taking it because of this reason. I also notice while I was taking it that I felt "unwell" like I was sick, but had no symptoms of really being sick except for a cough and a runny noise. I didn't have this before taking this medication.
Cost: < $25 monthly
