In brief: Many good options
There are highly effective treatments.
Often, we now use biologic medications, like Enbrel, Humira, Remicade, Simponi, Cimzia or Stelara (ustekinumab). These are injected. Some are pills such as methotrexate. Recently a new pill was approved called Otezla. A rheumatologist is experienced in treating psoriatic arthritis and can help.

In brief: Psoriatic arthritis
Your doctor may recommend tumor necrosis factor-alpha (tnf-alpha) inhibitors if you have severe psoriatic arthritis.
These drugs block the protein that causes inflammation in some types of arthritis and can improve signs and symptoms of psoriasis, as well. This group of drugs is the best to treat arthritis caused by psoriasis.
