In conclusion, I would like to note that very often doctors
prescribe drugs that do not have a “target”
appointments, that is, are not aimed at treating a specific
diseases, and are used in the treatment of psoriasis. Many
patients find that some of these remedies have no beneficial
actions do not have, but cost considerable funds and are not appointed
justified. We provide a list of drugs
which you probably should not use just because they are all
рекомендуют или рекламируют для лечения псориаза.
- Vitamins, Panangin, Aloe Extract, Linex, Otsillococcinum,
Vitreous humor, Timogen, Glycine, Wobenzym.
- Funds that are assigned as core, without justification.
To take each of these drugs should be like
minimum to establish that the patient has abnormal liver function
(Essentiale, Leaf 52, Phosphogiv), and you should not use
no immunomodulators without immunogram and consultation
immunologist (Polyoxidonium, Interferon, Cycloferon, etc.). This
the list goes on – Riboxin, Arbidol, Vinpocetine, Reamberin,
Zinnarizin, Actovegin, Mezim, Trombovazim, Cerebrolysin, Nootropil,
Lidase, Vinpocetine, Hemodez, Aflutop, Taufon, Piracetam, Corvalol,
Validol. Before buying these drugs and using for
treatment, you should know exactly why they are assigned to you.
- Supplements – according to the majority of patients with psoriasis, these tools are so
called “naturopathy” – the invention of marketers, often
recommended by doctors as medicines, are not cheap,
and do not show efficiency.
