Sensoready Pen

Injecting shouldn’t be a challenge. That’s why we have supplemental tools and information available here that can help make injecting easier.

The Sensoready® Pen is easy to use

At 3 months, people in a plaque psoriasis clinical trial were pleased with the Sensoready Pen and how easy it was to use.

COSENTYX is also available in a prefilled syringe. Work with your doctor to decide which device is best for you.

The Sensoready Pen is designed for comfort

And it helps hide the needle, so you don’t even have to see it.
