Individual results may vary.

Living with lower back pain caused by ankylosing spondylitis (AS) can make simple tasks and activities very challenging—and sometimes even impossible.

If your current treatment isn't helping you move forward with less back pain and morning stiffness, it may be time to consider COSENTYX.

WHAT IS COSENTYX?

COSENTYX works differently than other biologics. It's the first and only treatment for AS that works within your body to target the IL-17A protein, and is the latest to treat AS differently in over 10 years.

MEET IL-17A

WHILE THE SPECIFIC CAUSES OF ANKYLOSING SPONDYLITIS ARE NOT FULLY KNOWN, IT IS BELIEVED THAT THERE ARE MULTIPLE PROTEINS IN THE IMMUNE SYSTEM, INCLUDING IL-17A, WHICH MAY PLAY A ROLE IN INFLAMMATION.

COSENTYX CAN HELP MAKE A DIFFERENCE AND HELP YOU FEEL BETTER

COSENTYX is proven to reduce symptoms of AS such as:

BACK PAIN

MORNING STIFFNESS

REDUCED MOBILITY

At 16 weeks, approximately 6 out of 10 people taking COSENTYX noticed at least a 20% improvement in overall symptoms,* and approximately 4 out of 10 people saw at least a 40% improvement in overall symptoms of AS.

*About 60% of patients saw this level of improvement versus 28% taking placebo.

COSENTYX IS PROVEN TO DELIVER:

GREATER IMPROVEMENT
IN MOBILITY

MORE BACK PAIN RELIEF

COSENTYX IS TAKEN AS:

CONVENIENT
MONTHLY DOSE

In a clinical trial, versus placebo at week 16.

COSENTYX IS A CONVENIENT ONCE-A-MONTH DOSE

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.

Your healthcare provider should show you how to prepare and inject COSENTYX before you use it for the first time.

COSENTYX is effective on its own, even if you take it with or without methotrexate or sulfasalazine. Your rheumatologist may prescribe COSENTYX with or without methotrexate or sulfasalazine.

Monthly dose equals 1 dose every 4 weeks.

New cases of inflammatory bowel disease or "flare-ups" can happen with COSENTYX, and can sometimes be serious. If you have inflammatory bowel disease (ulcerative colitis or Crohn’s disease), tell your doctor if you have worsening disease symptoms during treatment with COSENTYX or develop new symptoms of stomach pain or diarrhea.
