As a Fumaderm user of over 2 years I hope this message helps . Having suffered from psoriasis (severe) for over 35 years and having tried all types of creams, light treatments , cyclosporin and methotrexate I've found Fumaderm to be the most effective treatment yet . Obviously this treatment won't suit everyone but in my case it has almost completely eradicated the problem and allowed me to live a normal life again . The side effects for me were stomach cramps , hot flushes coupled with red face and stinging facial skin and eyelids . All of these died down over time with just an occasional hiccup . The flushes, cramps and stinging skin would normally last approximately 30 minutes before easing off . These days it is rare for me to have any problems but I would take the side effects every day as long as I continued to have the quality of life that I now have . I find the best way to take the medication is to take it after food and to try to keep to a set timetable and take pills at roughly the same time each day . Should you forget to take them any time just move on to the next dose . Never double the dose to make up for the missed one as this will almost certainly give you problems ( as I found from experience ). Keep getting blood checks as required by dermatologist . Hopefully this helps a little and I sincerely hope that if Fumaderm doesn't work for you that you do find some treatment that will .

Hi Rafe,

Thank you for taking the time to share your experience with Fumaderm. From what I've read, Fumaderm's most common side effects are gastro-intestinal related. Although I think it's great to finally hear a positive review despite its challenging side effects. I'm curious to know though, whether or not psoriasis can come back after your treatment is over?

My brother actually used to have pretty severe psoriasis (for a number of years), and had managed to find relief under a series of light treatments. To my knowledge his psoriasis never returned; but I bring this up because I do truly hope you can continue to live the quality of life you choose, without having to compromise by taking a medication for life. However, when it comes to one's skin, I think the relief is completely worth it. Our appearance is what drives our self confidence, self esteem, personality, socializing, etc; all which have an impact on other important areas of our lives.

A slight improvement in my skin condition started during the initial Fumaderm low dosage trial, this was also my introduction to the side effects. As I already said the results (in my opinion) outweighed the discomfort caused by the drug . Regarding the return of psoriasis after coming off Fumaderm ,about five months ago I became ill with Norovirus and was unable to take Fumaderm for approximately three weeks and in that time my skin stayed clear . After that I started back on tablets taking only one per day for about a month as I knew I couldn't go back to full dosage straight away . I am now taking half the dosage I used to take with no real skin problems apart from an odd little spot which I treat with a small dab of Dovobet ointment . Hopefully this continues ... I'm due to return to dermatologist for usual checks next week and will post how things go .
