Comments from related studies:
From this study (1 month ago):
since taking sertraline i have broken out in small spots of psoriasis on legs, waiste and stomache
From this study (2 months ago):
I believe the only change to my diet or drug usage was 6 months on sertraline. I am going to wean off the medication and hopefully the skin will improve. I have psoriasis in my family but have never experienced it until last year and it is worsening.
From this study (2 months ago):
I had a knee replacement while on humira and I was wondering if humira could be causing or contributing to adhesions. Like maybe too much collagen in my body. They are very bad and did not go away after Manuel manipulation. I'm thinking of using a different drug. I may need them cut. Please help me. Thank You,
