I was recently diagnosed with psoriasis. I have been on Humira for two months but have not seen much improvement. I have had some minor arthritis problems in the feet and hands. Would love to hear from anyone with ideas; I did read the post about mangosteen. I would love to hear from you.

Ron,

I have never used Humira but I did use Enbrel and had great results. It was the first time in decades that my feet didn't hurt.

I can no longer use it because of other health issues but It made a tremendous difference for me.

If you look at the post about magnosteen under where Tina's Icon is you will see " Send a PM"

This is E-mail that she will see you may want to try that.

Welcome to the group and let me know if I can help in any way.

I am scheduled to start Enbrel soon. I have high hopes, but I have never tried a biologic before. I will let you know the results.

I had my first shot of the new drug Stelara on 1-4-10 and am seeing some amazing results. Thank goodness.....I was beginning to think there was no hope. I am also taking mangosteen.
