Have you discussed adjusting cosentyx with your doctor?



Cosentyx is a medication that is used to treat various autoimmune diseases such as psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and ankylosing spondylitis. The active ingredient in Cosentyx is secukinumab, which works by blocking the activity of a protein called interleukin-17A, which is involved in inflammation.

The dosage of Cosentyx depends on the condition being treated and the patient's weight. The recommended starting dose for psoriasis is 300 mg, given as two subcutaneous injections of 150 mg each. For psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis, the recommended starting dose is 150 mg. After the initial dose, the maintenance dose is usually 150 mg every four weeks.

It is important to discuss any adjustments to the dosage of Cosentyx with a doctor. The doctor will consider factors such as the patient's condition, response to treatment, and any side effects before making any changes to the dosage.

The cost of Cosentyx can vary depending on factors such as insurance coverage and the pharmacy where it is purchased. The manufacturer of Cosentyx offers a program called the Cosentyx Connect Copay Program, which can help eligible patients with the cost of the medication.
