Im looking for a bit of advice as to what to ask my doctor.
I finally got a doctor's appointment (I'm living in Germany) and now that Olumiant is available on prescription here I'm ready to give it a try.
I have been struggling with alopecia all my life off and on and currently I'm pretty much hairless all over including eyebrows and lashes.
Apart from the alopecia I am healthy but have some arthritis here and there.
As most doctor's that I have seen over the years have basically no idea about this condition and that German isn't my first language would anyone know what to ask for so that I come away with a prescription?
Any advice would be helpful as I am not really good at communication when it comes to explaining my condition.
Thanks in advance.
Yes, great points above and I echo what SabineTawni said. Maybe a second opinion /another dr be better. That's hard and I hope doing alright. Know what like to wait while for good doctor etc and to get a bad one.
I have been on Xeljanz for 9 years and now have to switch to Olumiant due to the new FDA approval. Only the 2 mgs was approved for alopecia. I was wondering if anyone has had success with this dose.
hello i used olumiant 4mg for 6 months is less effective than xeljanz.
today i am on abrocitinib from pfizer 100mg much better.
pfizer has announced that their drug ritlecitinib jak 3 tyk2 is approved for alopecia the FDA has given its approval it will be marketed in the coming weeks it is used only for alopecia
