Psoriatic Arthritis – Treatment Options


The first thing to say is that as a dermatologist, I rely on our
rheumatological colleagues to treat this. I think it depends on the severity and the responsiveness to the drugs.
Non-steroid anti-inflammatories are used. If they fail, there are drugs called DMARDS, there is hydroxy-chloroquin, there is
methotrexate, and if they fail, they go on to the biologics. In some circumstances, when the problem is acute, they may even
start with these newer drugs. These TNF inihibitors are the front line drugs for psoriatic arthritis.
