Convenient once-a-month dosing†
Taking your AS medication once a month helps you have fewer interruptions in your daily routine. Just one convenient monthly dose of COSENTYX may help relieve symptoms of ankylosing spondylitis.
To start, your doctor may prescribe something called a loading dose, which means you start with 5 weekly doses. After you complete the loading dose, you will take COSENTYX once per month. Your doctor will determine if the loading dose is right for you.
Your rheumatologist may prescribe COSENTYX with or without methotrexate.
The recommended dose is 150 mg, which is taken as one injection under the skin. COSENTYX is injected with the Sensoready® Pen or a prefilled syringe.
If you continue to have AS symptoms, your rheumatologist may prescribe 300 mg (taken as two 150 mg injections).
Your healthcare provider should show you how to prepare and inject COSENTYX before you use it for the first time.
†Monthly dose equals 1 dose every 4 weeks.
