Watch Dosing for Injectable Biologics for Psoriasis Closely
Patients with psoriasis often try several meds to manage symptoms...and you can help avoid mishaps with the common Rx meds.
Topical preps (calcipotriene, Protopic, steroids, etc) are used by almost all psoriasis patients...to help improve skin plaques and reduce inflammation.
Clarify orders that don't include a dosage form...to ensure patients get the right formulation. For example, ointments are better for thick plaques on the torso and limbs...and foams or solutions are better for plaques on the scalp.
