Hi! I’ve had PsA for many years, I am now 70. Been on Methotrexate, Azulfadine, & then finally Enbrel. Developed BOOP (lung disease), then MAI, so I needed to come off biologics. Went on Otezla that worked for a little over 2 years, then it stopped working! I’m in tremendous pain, and using prescription strength Advil. Ive been placed on meds for the MAI ( 3 antibiotics, 3X a week for 12 to 18 months) & hopefully, after 3 months, I can go back in n the biologics. Does anyone else have a similar situation? Thank you.

@peach414144 You have said nothing wrong as far as I can tell. I was just trying to explain you may have been misundetstood and to not take it personally. I am of the mind set to just let it go. Be yourself and stay upbeat!

I feel for you! I’m 69 and have tried Enbrel, Remicade, Cimzia and have just now started on Humira. I’m waiting for the axe to fall as to the copay. I liked Enbrel a lot, but we are both retired now and can’t afford the copay.

I am 51 and can not take embrel or humara because of cancer. I have been put on otezla, hopefully that will do something. I was on tremedol for years, then had to be upped to norco for about five years then to morphine and percocet. Sucks having this because alot of doctors don’t seem to know much about it except for the rhemotologist.
