Arthritis and Rheumatism
My dad is 70 yrs of age suffering from Psoriatic Arthritis. He was suffering from this a decade ago too but the same was cured with the help of Ayurvedic Medication but the same is not working this time. He is bed ridden since last two months got the treatment of around 5 different docotors but of no use. He is having a lot of pain in Knee & Wrist joints.
Pls assist it there is thourough medication for this situation of his...
It is difficult to make recommendations on medications without knowing what treatments have already been tried and have not been successful. Useful medications for treatment of psoriatic arthritis include non steroid anti-inflammatory drugs i.e. ibuprofen, naproxen, methotrexate, and anti-TNF agents i.e. Enbrel, Humira.
