Treating psoriasis can be a lifelong commitment. Having the right tools and support system in place when you start can help you stay motivated and on track. That’s why we designed the COSENTYX® Connect Personal Support Program—a range of helpful resources and tools available whenever you need them.
You’ll have individualized support from a team of support specialists at COSENTYX Connect right from the start, including your Patient Services Liaison. Your dedicated team is available to answer questions about your medication, injecting, or insurance.

You’ll receive this helpful kit in the mail, shortly after your healthcare professional submits the completed and signed SRF. It includes answers to questions about COSENTYX, instructions on how to use your medication, and supplemental injection demonstration videos to reinforce the training you received from your doctor.
As part of our free sharps mail-back program, you'll be mailed a recyclable sharps container to easily dispose of your injection materials and return them. Just send your full sharps container back using the pre-paid return label, and you'll be sent a new container.
If your doctor chooses additional training, in-person injection training is available at no cost to you—your Patient Services Liaison will help to schedule it at a time and location that’s convenient for you. You can also watch a helpful step-by-step injection demonstration video to reinforce what you have learned.
Do not use COSENTYX if you have had a severe allergic reaction to secukinumab or any of the other ingredients in COSENTYX. See the Medication Guide for a complete list of ingredients.
