Tiredness, loss of apetite. Taken soriatain for psoriasis. Is it an immunosuppressant and causing the symptoms?

Ive been really tired for the last 4 or 5 days, no appetite ,sleep doesn t seem to help. I have basically been in my room for the last 3 days. I missed 3 days of work but I have to go back today or I may jeopardize my job. Any ideas as to what may be going on. By the way I am a 60 yr old male. Oh yeah, I take soriatain for severe psoriasis and I think it is an immuno suppressant. Don t know if that means anything or not but figured it might be good to mention it.

Since you have been on immunosuppresant for many years get a CBC done to rule out bonemarrow suppresion and fasting and postprandial bloodsugar and GTT if they are elevated and get treated accordingly.
