I'm NOT sure: what Psoriasis medicine your Doctor is referring to! I can't think of an anti-psoriasis medication which will do this although Renal function is generally monitored in patients taking biological medications (anti-metabolites) for the disease! Ask your question again with more information! Dr Z
