Methotrexate vs acitretin

Posted Fri 17 Feb 2017 5.01pm by Linda


I've had psoriasis all my life and have been able to control it with creams . I've recently had severe psoriasis on my hands and feet to the point where I can't get shoes on. The doctor has now recommended I take methotrexate but did mention acitretin as an alternative. Having read up on the pros and cons of both I'm interested to hear your views on these tablets. Appreciate everyone is different but any comments and advice would be great. Thanks. Linda x
