    Hi Julie…I am on month 3 of Otezla and have written you before. I agree it does affect the
    digestive system but my body is also adjusting and less digestive upset or frequent stools.
    There are good days and bad as far as side effects. The frequent headaches I was having seem to have subsided. My psoraisis is about 95% better and I think it is worth the side effects to be rid of painful bleeding feet and hands. I pushed my insurance as this drug is about
    $2500 a month…yes…a month! With my insurance coverage I pay $100 copay for a 30 day supply. So…your sample packets are truly a gift!! Best of luck to you and I truly hope your
    Doctor contacts your insurance and demands that you need the drug after all the other avenues you have tried.
