Psoriatic Arthritis: Is Your Biologic Working?
So, you’re looking for a new psoriatic arthritis treatment, and you and your doctor have decided to give biologic medication a shot. Biologics are newer medicines, derived from living organisms, that target the root of inflammation in your body. They can be a game-changer for many people, allowing patients with all kinds of chronic conditions to overcome debilitating symptoms, but it’s not always easy to tell right away if they’re working. After your first dose, you might feel optimistic that you’re on the path to feeling better. After a few weeks, you might not be so sure. If you find yourself wondering if your biologic medication is working, you aren’t alone.
