Hi, I have PA & AS have tried most including Methotrexate without success. It is annoying as my Specialist says that having both these conditions, it is very hard to treat. Meth does have side effects, works for some, other it doesn't. Good Luck. Keep walking!!


Hi Ladyinred - I have been on Ciclosporin for the past 8 weeks, and it has worked wonders with the plaques and itching!! I can now concentrate on a new drug which I should be taking in the next couple of weeks for my AS.
