Cosentyx - Overview
Cosentyx, containing the active ingredient secukinumab, is a medication used in the management of some instances of plaque psoriasis and ankylosing spondylitis. People who might need a Cosentyx injection prescription can use Push Health to connect with a medical provider who can prescribe Cosentyx when appropriate and indicated to do so.
What Is Cosentyx Used For?
Cosentyx (secukinumab) belongs to a class of medications known as human IgG1 monoclonal antibody medications. Cosentyx, like Taltz, specifically binds up a cytokine known as interleukin-17A (IL-17A), a chemical that is involved with instigating the inflammatory response and stimulating the immune system. By binding up IL-17A, Cosentyx blocks its ability to interact with the IL-17A receptor and blunts the subsequent immune stimulation. This effect on IL-17A in particularly important because high levels of IL-17A are generally identified in psoriatic plaques As a result, Cosentyx is used in the management of some people with psoriasis and has also found use in helping resolve symptoms associated with ankylosing spondylitis.
Cosentyx - Cost and Dosing
Many providers use a dosing schedule of Cosentyx 150 mg (300 mg for some people) injected subcutaneously at weeks 0, 1, 2, 3, and 4 followed by 300 mg every 4 weeks although the ultimate regimen depends on the patient and the judgement of the prescribing medical provider. The Cosentyx injection itself is free of preservatives and is clear and colorless with a yellowish coloration. Following subcutaneous administration, Cosentyx reaches peak levels in the serum in approximately six days. On a monthly dosing schedule, secukinumab reached a steady state concentration in approximately six months. The half life of secukinumab (Cosentyx) is roughly one month. Following its stay in the body, secukinumab is metabolized into amino acids and peptides and excreted. Cosentyx is very expensive, costing thousands of dollars per Cosentyx 150 mg / mL sensoready pen. Depending on the reason, Cosentyx may be covered by some insurance plans. Cosentyx coupons and copay cards may also be available through the manufacturer or online. When not in use, Cosentyx Sensoready pens should be refrigerated.
