Problem with meds,side effects.I am post nearly 3 weeks since heart attack and having a stent fitted.Before all this I had psoriasis fairly bad for the last 5-10 years,finnally I have been in remission for about 2 years ,and clearing up nicely with only a bit on my arm and leg that was really good when moisturised.But now all of a sudden -well 2 weeks into my meds for H.A. and about 4 days or so of having Ramipril increased to 2.5mg I am getting a flare up of my Psoriasis and itching like I never had before.reading the side effects on meds ,have pinned it down to Ramipril and Bisiprolol which both say it can worsen Psoriasis.I have a phone consultation with my doctor tomorrow ,but my question is are there other meds that can replace these 2?I cannot tell you how badly I was affected physically and mentally by the Psoriasis when it was at its worse and do not relish going back to how I was. Has anyone on here had this problem.Sorry for the long post.Really keen to hear from anyone who has same problem.
