How much does psoriasis treatment cost?Skin, Hair & Nails
Given that I expect to have psoriasis for a while – how much can I expect to pay for medicines, creams and other treatments for psoriasis?
Thanks for the D2D.Psoriasis is indeed a chronic disease and you are right that you can expect to be on treatment for some time.
The price of topical creams can vary depending on the type of creams used and the amount used. Topical coal tar and topical steroids are generally less expensive that the vitamin analogues.
The cost of oral medications also vary depending on the medication prescribed. Methotrexate is most cost-effective treatment and cyclosporine a most expensive treatment. The price can range from $30 to 600 dollars a month.
The new biologic agents, while highly effective, come with a hefty price tag. The cost can range from $1200 to 2000k a month depending on the biologic that is used.
