Psoriasis and drugs. Psoriasis and medicines. Psoriasis and other diseases. Some drugs can exacerbate lesions in psoriatic patients and also can inhibit the response to the antipsoriatic treatments. It is considered a risk factor because it increases the possibility of contracting a disease or suffering from a condition.
There are risk factors for the onset of psoriasis and one of them is drugs. It is considered a risk factor because it increases the possibility of contracting a disease or suffering from a condition.
In addition, if a patient already diagnosed with psoriasis takes any of these medications listed below, an exacerbation of the lesions and a poor response to the antipsoriatic treatments may occur.
Some of these drugs are:
Systemic and topical corticosteroids applied on large areas and took in high doses after being abruptly suspended.
Chloroquine and hydroxychloroquine that can even trigger a generalized form of the disease.
NSAIDs (ibuprofen, naproxen, indomethacin).
Beta-blockers (atenolol, propanolol, nebivolol, carvedilol, labetalol, nadolol, oxprenolol, sotalol) (these are drugs that block Beta1- and Beta2-Adrenergic Receptors. They are used for the treatment of hypertension, angina pectoris and cardiac arrhythmias. Depending on the receptors they blocked, they are classified as cardioselective such as atenolol and non-cardioselective like the propanolol which was one of the first drugs developed).
(captopril, enalapril, lisinopril, fosinopril, imidapril, perindopril, quinapril, ramipril, trandolapril)
They are a group of drugs with diverse characteristics, all of them are bound to the beta adrenergic receptors producing a competitive and reversible antagonists of stimulant effects of beta.
In pharmacology, a beta-blocker (also written β-blocker) is a type of medication used for the treatment of various conditions, particularly for the treatment of heartbeats disorders and cardioprotection after a myocardial infarction.
Beta-blockers are also called beta-adrenergic blocking agents, beta-adrenergic antagonists or beta-antagonists. Most beta-blockers are only antagonists, which means drug binding to the receptor does not activate it, although some are partial antagonists, causing a limited activation of receptor -although it is a considerably lower activation than the one produced by full agonists.
Examples of beta blockers:
Dichloroisoprenaline, the first beta-adrenergic receptor antagonist drug.
They act on Beta 1 and Beta 2 receptors
• Carvedilol (has additional alpha-blocking activity and intrinsic sympathomimetic activity)
• Labetalol (has additional alpha-blocking activity)
• Penbutolol (has intrinsic sympathomimetic activity)
• Pindolol (has intrinsic sympathomimetic activity)
Beta 1 selective or cardioselective blockers. They act preferentially on Beta 1 receptors
• Acebutolol (has intrinsic sympathomimetic activity)
Beta2 selective blockers
• Butaxamine (slight alpha adrenergic agonist activity) - Not used in clinical practice, only experimentation.
It is important to consult your primary care physician before starting a treatment for psoriasis if you are taking one of the drugs mentioned above.
