In brief: Vitamin D especially
Vitamins are not the mainstay of therapy for psoriatic arthritis but they are indicated in certain situations.
If the patient has a vitamin deficiency, this is an indication for the specific vitamin. Many of our patients have vitamin d deficiency. This is important for calcium metabolism and immune function to name a few. Topical vitamin d treats psoriasis. If on Methotrexate - folic acid.

In brief: Fish oil
Also recommend omega-3 fish oil (epa/dha) and a glucosamine/chondroitin supplement like osteo bi-flex.
However you should check with your rheumatologist before starting any new medications or suppplements.
