I see that Denise hasn't visited the forum since she posted.
I suggest you visit a psoriasis forum because it is used for psoriasis although I don't know how the dosage might differ.
But surely your doctors have had a good chat with you about what to expect and how to cope with any side effects there might be ?
If you click on Denise's name in blue to the left of her post you will get through to her profile. Where it says contact details and you can send her an email via the forum. Put Raptiva in the title.
I can understand you not wanting to tell your parents if they are going to fuss and worry and can't offer any sort of help. I hope your boys are old enough to manage small things for themselves or maybe you have a friend who could help out if need be. You know how it is of course, but it's a pity your older boys can't help out.
I want to wish you the very best of luck and hope any side effects will be minimal but do ask your docs what to expect.
I very much hope you will let us know how you get on so that others with the same problems can benefit from your experiences.
Many hugs and all the best
Bye for now
Are you injecting at home or is it being done at the hospital ?
