What is Cosentyx?
Cosentyx is a medication prescribed to adults who have one or more of the inflammatory autoimmune diseases:
- Plaque psoriasis
- Psoriatic arthritis
- Ankylosing spondylitis
It’s often prescribed after a first round of medication has proven ineffective. Cosentyx is given as an injection under your skin (a subcutaneous injection). It can be done by a doctor or nurse, or by yourself using a pre-filled syringe or a Sensoready pen.
These three conditions are called autoimmune diseases because they’re caused by your immune system mistakenly attacking healthy parts of your body. Your immune system kills and removes pathogens that can make you ill, and helps you recover from injury. It causes inflammation to help combat pathogens and to aid healing. However, sometimes your immune system can target healthy parts of your body. It triggers inflammation in healthy tissue, and over time this inflammation can disrupt and damage the tissue, such as when arthritis is caused.
Plaque psoriasis is a skin condition caused by a speeding up of the lifecycle of skin cells, likely triggered by your immune system. It causes cells to build upon the surface of your skin, resulting in red patches covered in silvery scales. These patches can occur in a few places or they can cover large areas of your body.
Psoriatic arthritis is a joint condition that’s related to plaque psoriasis and happens most often in people who have plaque psoriasis. It’s caused by inflammation in your joints. It can make joints stiff, swollen, and painful, and it can cause damage as cartilage and bone are lost over time. Psoriatic arthritis can affect any joint, but it’s most common in the fingers and toes.
Ankylosing spondylitis is a form of arthritis caused by inflammation in the joints of your spine and sometimes in your shoulders and hips. It can result in stiffness, pain, damage, and deformation of the joints over time.
Cosentyx helps with these conditions by limiting the amount of inflammation your immune system can cause. It can ease the symptoms of psoriatic arthritis and ankylosing spondylitis and can limit the damage they can cause. Outbreaks of plague psoriasis on the skin can be decreased as well as any itching and pain.
Cosentyx active ingredients
The active ingredient in Cosentyx is called secukinumab. It reduces the amount of inflammation your immune system can cause. Your immune system triggers inflammation by releasing molecules called cytokines. Secukinumab works by binding with these cytokines. This stops the cytokines from working, reducing the amount of inflammation they can trigger.
Cosentyx side effects & Cosentyx drug interactions
The side effects most often caused by Cosentyx are increased rates of infections, as Cosentyx is an immunosuppressant. Affecting around one in 10 people who take it, they include:
- Upper respiratory tract infections
- Cold sores (oral herpes)
- A runny nose (rhinorrhea)
Sometimes, Cosentyx can cause more serious side effects, including:
- Severe allergic reactions
- Severe infections
- Skin redness and shedding of large areas of skin, which may be itchy or painful (exfoliative dermatitis)
Your physician will assess your risk of side effects versus the benefits of taking Cosentyx.
When taken alongside each other, some medications can interact. This can alter how they work and increase the likelihood of certain side effects. Cosentyx may interact with vaccines containing live agents. Tell your physician if you plan to have any vaccinations.
