  • Effectiveness
    Slight (for Psoriasis)
  • side effects
    Mild (Drowsy, Drowsiness)
  • Adherence
    Usually
  • Burden
    Not at all hard to take
Dosage: 7.5 mg Weekly
Advice & Tips: Background:I have never taken and immunosuppressant for 13 years that I've had psoriasis only on my elbows and lower legs. My guttate psoriasis all over my back and arms was triggered after a flu shot and he suggested Methotrexate. Notes: By "drowsiness" I mean to say that it made my system feel down. I was in a relaxed mood and didn't feel like doing anything, not necessary dizzy. I saw a little bit improvement--psoriasis on back is less fared, vitiligo from healed psoriasis remains, but definitely is not worse than when I started.
