Side effects of medication possibly causing psoriasis.

Q: Can toporal cause psorasis. I have read articles which indicate that. I am alergic pain reliever celebrix and my doc is afraid to give me ace inhibiters. What can I do as an alternative?

A: Beta blockers such as Toprol can cause a dermatitis that can look similar to psoriasis.  This is not a common side effect but it does occur.   There are plenty of other types of medicine to control high blood pressure in addition to beta blockers and ace inhibitors.  For a list describing the different types go to for more information.
