I thought I'd give you a quick update on how I'm going on fumaderm.
Im currently still on fumaderm initial with my positively glacial build up of tablets. I'm 10 or so weeks into it and I'm taking 2 in the morning, 1 at lunch and 2 in the evening.
I noticed that each time I increase a dose I have a few days of flushing then it settles, I've never had any stomach issues so far.
Now I don't know if this is normal but the psoriasis on my legs has gone from an angry red to virtually regular skin colour! The change in my skin is incredible, you'd be hard pressed to notice that I ever had anything on my legs and the psoriasis on my elbows has also all but gone!
Im tempted to tell my derm to keep me on the initial tablets to see if it keeps improving.
It isn't all sunshine and roses though. I still have a fair amount on my sides and shoulders which itch like crazy and seems stubborn to move, but I'm hopeful that as I keep increasing the dose it will kick in.
Has anyone else had a dramatic clearance on just the initial tablets?
That's great news that you are clearing on that slow build up. So I see what you mean about staying on a low dose ...you are on the equivalent of one and a quarter full strength tablets a day, I would continue at your low dose and you may actually get clearance on the low dose ...if not keep building slowly and see how 2 full strength tablets work for you ...
I'm pleased it's working and wish you good luck which ever way you go
