Greetings. This line of treatment opted for psoriasis is fine. Folitrax is a common medication used and must be initiated after screening tests. However, I wouldn't comment on such alternating treatment to be taken for your entire life. Continuous treatment can be given for few months while blood tests are monitored and lesions are controlled. Depending on severity, oral medications can be stopped and disease can be controlled with creams alone . hope this helps. Warm regards
