Health Question

If I start a biologic, do I need to stop my current regimen for the treatment for my psoriasis?

Take a photo or make a list of your current treatment regimen to bring with you to the office visit so your dermatologist can know how to adapt or adjust your treatment to optimize your results. It also helps to bring in any recent lab work. Your doctor may have you continue topical treatments when you first add a biologic, and then taper off as the new medication takes effect.
