Otezla And Food AversionsUpdated
Looking for answers, I have been on Otezla for 5 months with wonderful results. Had Plaques on 15% of my body and now down to 1%. But I have had significant weight loss, and difficulty eating. Nothing sounds good and if I try to force myself to eat, I start gagging and get the feeling I'm going to vomit. The weight loss was welcomed, but now starting to worry as it has not slowed down, and the difficulty eating has been increasing. Anyone out there with the same experiences?

I'm glad to hear that you have had such success with the plaques but since your symptoms have continued to worsen I would suggest that you discuss this matter with your primary care physician to ensure that it is safe for you to continue administering this drug.
