To use Soriatane or not?
I have been off Soriatane since late this summer, I think. So that means I can't give blood for another 3 yrs from the point I last took it. (Supposedly it takes that long for Acetrin(sp) to get out of the system).I've read some of the side effects on Soriatane, and like anyone else, I'd love to... Asked by Felecia Minerva 1 year ago.

I have been off Soriatane since late this summer, I think. So that means I can't give blood for another 3 yrs from the point I last took it. (Supposedly it takes that long for Acetrin(sp) to get out of the system). I've read some of the side effects on Soriatane, and like anyone else, I'd love to avoid them. My psoriasis is mild - being only on the scalp and a bit on my trunk. The problem is that it tends to flare up in the winter. In the winter, I tend to have redness/dryness on my face, but never plaques. I don't have much acne, but what I do have gets worse... maybe I can blame the consumption of excess sugar/starches in the winter? :P I can live with both of these. If I cannot be accepted by my friends over these details, they weren't my friends from the start. My dosage was something like 25mg... and I only ever took it when there was a flareup. It was admittedly irregular - taken as needed. So as the title question goes, to use it or not to? It's tempting to because I know that Soriatane is similar to Accutane, and so it will help with my mild psoriasis as well as what acne I have... but I feel like there will probably be some longterm consequence(s) as a result of its use. What do you think? Answered by Livia Aldapa 1 year ago.

        Hey, Newo! I didn't know you have psoriasis. I have psoriasis, too, and have had since I was 10 years old (currently, 54). My case is a more severe one, though. I inherited the condition from both sides of my family (my mother's uncle had it and my father and his mother had it). Otherwise...         With 44 years of experience, you can trust that I know what I am talking about. Plus, I also have two years of medical training before changing over to computer science. At any rate...         Technically, Soriatane *never* gets out of your system. Meaning, it gets into the fatty tissues and *never* comes out of them. The three years are a *recommendation* time frame which allows *most* of the detectable traces in the blood to have diminished. But if a biopsy of your fatty tissues were done, even TEN years after stopping all use of such related drugs, analysis would still reveal significant levels of these types of drugs still remain in your tissues. Thus, if you admit to a blood bank that you took these drugs more than three years prior, the good ones will still likely refuse you even though you are beyond the recommended safety level for giving blood. Meaning... They just don't like to take the chance. I know, because I've had blood banks give me just such a response because of other medications I have taken in years past for my psoriasis.         So, what am I currently using? Well, I used the PUVA therapy with great success from about 1977 through about 2007. But, then my skin started rejecting the treatment by going into sun poisoning mode. Very painful -- especially when it is over my entire body (because that is how severe my case of psoriasis can be). Now, my last doctor had already tried to talk me into going with the biologic treatments (Enbrel, Humira, etc.) but, at the time, my company insurance only reimbursed prescription drugs and I couldn't afford the up-front cost of these medications at the counter. However, by the time my skin started rejecting the PUVA treatments, my company insurance had changed so that I only had to pay 20% at the counter and the rest was a direct bill to the insurance company. So, now I inject myself (Enbrel) once a week at a retail cost of about $380 per injection. ;-)         Now, mind you, I'm not suggesting that these biologic drugs are any better. If you've never tried PUVA therapy, you might look into it. My philosophy is that you do what you have to do to be comfortable in your own skin. If I can't give blood from now on, well, that is a totally separate issue for me. ;-) God bless. Answered by Drema Fishback 1 year ago.

Can Soriatane cause a man to become sterile?

If I take Soriatane for only one month do I still have to wait 3 years before becoming pregnant?
My doctor put me on Soriatane for one month for acne before putting me on accutane. However, the literature I've read says you have to wait 3 years after going off soriatane to become pregnant. I am not sure if I can wait 3 years. However, what if you are only on it for one month? I am really nervous and need... Asked by Aracely Hynson 1 year ago.
