Crohns Disease and Psoriasis

I have Crohns Disease and Psoriasis. My doctor wants to put me on a combination of Imuran and Humira to treat the Crohns and said that a side benefit of the Humira is that it will also clear the psoriasis. One of the potential side effects of Humira is new or worsening Psoriasis. I would be taking Imuran and Humira, in theory, for my lifetime or until the next great drug is approved. My understanding is that when Humira is presecribed solely for psoriasis its given for a period of time then stopped, then started again incrementally. Is there anyone out there who has both these conditions and has taken these medications for an extended peiord of time that can share their experience?
