How safe is taking Folitrax, Indocap and Folic acid for PSA?

HI, My brother has been diagnosed with PsA, he has psoriasis from past 4 yrs but it showed only on the middle fingure on one hand. He was detected with chicken gunya 6 months back and ever since then he was in severe pain in all joints and swelling as well, could not walk also. Just a month back rheumatologist diagnosed him . He is on Folitrax 15mg/week, Indocap sr 75 daily once, and Folic acid.. Is this right treatment and can he take folitrax for life as said by the doctor.??? Pls do reply

Hi,

Yes, you can take anti-rheumatic medication too. Yes, this is the same medication fallowed in most of the rheumatologists unless there is severity/complication.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Take care
