HOW TO TAKE COSENTYX®
We know injecting can be challenging. That's why we have supportive tools and information to help you feel more comfortable. After you learn how to administer your medication from your doctor, you can get additional one-on-one training or watch step-by-step videos below.
- Use COSENTYX exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider.
- If your healthcare provider decides that you or a caregiver may give your injections of COSENTYX at home, you should receive training on the right way to prepare and inject COSENTYX.
- Do not try to inject COSENTYX yourself, until you or your caregiver has been shown how to inject COSENTYX by your healthcare provider.
- If you have not already received training from your healthcare provider, please contact them directly.
Be sure that you read, understand, and follow the Instructions for Use and Medication Guide before injecting COSENTYX.
Talk to your healthcare provider if you have any questions.

WHEN IS COSENTYX TAKEN?
COSENTYX is taken once a month*, although your doctor may choose to start you with 5 weekly doses. Work with your doctor to find out what's right for you.
The recommended dose of COSENTYX is 150 mg, which is taken as one injection under the skin.
COSENTYX is available in 2 different injection devices—the unique Sensoready® Pen and a prefilled syringe. Make sure to talk to your doctor to find out which one may be a better option for you. You can also see how each device works by watching the videos above.
People taking COSENTYX may self-inject on their own after proper training from their healthcare professional.
COSENTYX works with or without other therapies, such as methotrexate or sulfasalazine.
*Monthly dose equals 1 dose every 4 weeks.
DON'T GIVE UP
We know it's tempting to stop treatment if you're seeing results, and even easier to give up if your treatment isn't meeting your expectations. Ankylosing spondylitis is a chronic disease involving the immune system. Therefore, it's important for you to follow the treatment plan outlined by your doctor and to follow up with him/her regularly.
