Hi everyone. It’s been a while since I posted, but I have been reading a lot of posts.
My 22 year-old son has PsA; he was diagnosed at 16 years old. He just changed rheumatologists, and I feel that his new rheumatologist is going to work out. The previous doctor and her staff just didn’t cut it.
Anyway, since my last post in January (I think), my son has had numerous flare ups between Renflexis infusions, which have been very painful and debilitating. When we met with his previous rheumatologist, she was able to get approval for my son to receive Renflexis infusions every six weeks, instead of every eight weeks. He hasn’t had the six-week infusion yet. However, his new rheumatologist added Otezla to his meds. The hope is that the Otezla will help with his joint pain so he doesn’t have the awful flare ups. But right now, were in a “wait and see” pattern.
I’m wondering if others have used this combination of meds. I see this was a topic back in 2015, but nothing since, so I’m hoping that others have some input as to the success, or failure, of this combination since then. My son’s new rheumatologist has made suggestions to my son regarding his treatment, and he has decided to give this method a try.
