How effective is panimun bioral, when suffering from eczyma in legs ?

Hello, my mother is sufferring from eczyma in legs. After some kind of biopsy our dermatologist came to know that it is psoriasis . Doctor recommended panimun bioral capsules.She is taking this medicine since 2 months but does not show much effect. So she has discontinued and is currently using Halox ointment.How effective is panimun bioral in such cases and would discontinuation lead to any effect? Thanks.

Hello raj,
welcome to HCM
Panimun Bioral is Cyclosporine. It is given in very severe cases of psoriasis, not when psoriasis is limited to the legs.
So if your mother has stopped it, then she has done the right thing. There wont be any effect of discontinuation. continue using Halox.

1)     After being treated with Pscyclosporine, Wysolone, Pantasa and Azoron : His stools were OK, but his apetite decreased, a drastic decrease in Hb, loss of weight and continous fever.
2)     Cyclosporine stopped in Feb 2011, infliximab injection was given till april ( 300 mg x 3 times ) ( rest medicines same ) : His stools were Ok, But again apetite decreased, fever continued, low hb,
3)     Due to the above he was then shifted to Balacol, Azoran and Wysolone : His stools were Ok, But again apetite decreased, fever continued, low hb,low protein
4)     18th May : Due to continuos fall in Hb and Continuous fever Azoran was stopped : After this the fever discontinued and Hb was still the same.
5)     Treatment Shifted to Delhi in July , Azoran was started again along with Mesacol and Wysolon. All other medications were stopped. But as soon as azoran was started, he had continuous fever and loss of apetite . For which the doctor gave him OFLOX antibiotic.

Now, our doctor has stopped azoran and mesacol. The final set of medicines are 7.5mg Wysolone, Sazo 500 x three times x folic acid and vitamin tablets.. The problem is that now my father is feeling some movements in his stomach and his frequency has increased to 7 per day as compared to 5... Pls can you help us to confirm if Sazo alone can treat this ???
