I’ve been on otezla about 5 months now and it’s just occurred to me that maybe I should have flu vaccine while on this, it’s not something I would normally need and not been mentioned by gp at all. Thanks

This a slightly cautionary tale...…….....I have been on Methotrexate for psoriasis and psoriatic arthritis for nine years - a wonder drug for me.
I had a flu jab on Nov 7th - the stronger one as I am over 70. Since then I have had muscular pain in my arm a bit like a frozen shoulder although I have never reacted to a flu jab before. Neither GP or Rheumatologist have any idea why this should have occurred. It's getting better with exercise.

Thanks for the reply, I’m back at rheumatologist next week and will ask then.
