Hey, Chronically Fabulous Patient. Hope you’re having a great week!
As you heard here, I started the first week of the Otezla starter pack on February 12th.
I filmed the following week 1 recap video on February 18th – so just shy of a week.
Overall, week 1 was alright. Mostly annoying, to be honest.
I had a headache every day, my stomach wasn’t very happy, definitely felt nauseous and had a mini panic attack the one day.
Watch my video to hear my thoughts on week 1.
I can tell you that week 2 is definitely going much differently than week 1. Week 1’s side effects were more “annoying” than anything. Week 2’s side effects are affecting my day to day.
IMPORTANT NOTE: It is extremely important that if you experience side effects/adverse events from a medication that you report them. Why? Well, if you report them, more patients can be aware, drug companies can manufacture safer products and it can help the FDA do their job more appropriately. If you yourself experience adverse events, please make sure to report them to MedWatch.
Wishing You A Pain Free Day!
