@cplcharlie Hello,

Thank you for posting, I am sure there are some member son here that can share their experiences with you :)

Here is our fact sheet about otezla which gives information about it's usage.

I am on my 3rd biologic and i have found that it has affected my emotions and moods immensely  however, the side effects are tolerable in comparison to life without a biologic. 

My GP has prescribed duloxetine which has helped greatly .

I would definitely not stop without exploring all available options .

Good luck.
