Psoriatic causes inflammation, swelling, and aches in joints; by treating this arthritis right, one can reduce and resist these symptoms. The psoriatic arthritis treatment that can provide better results are Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), Disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARD), Biological response modifiers, and Phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitors. The drugs included in NSAIDs are naproxen, ibuprofen, indomethacin, diclofenac, and etodolac. The common DMARD are methotrexate, leflunomide cyclosporin, sulfasalazine, and azathioprine. Some biological response modifiers are infliximab, golimumab, etanercept, adalimumab, certolizumab pegol, and Tofacitinib. Phosphodiesterase-4 inhibitors include Apremilast. If these medications do not work, the doctor will recommend the patient for surgery.
