Began in December 2018 taking 30mg daily of this drug as my Psoriasis erupted with a vengeance. My whole body was covered and I was in sheer agony. My GP said it was so severe, I had to be selective in the areas were I applied creams/lotions etc.  Even the Dermatologist said: She had never seen my skin this bad. I have Plague, Guttate and Inverse Psoriasis.
