Am I eligible for Sotyktu patient assistance?

We review each Sotyktu enrollment application individually to determine if you are eligible. Each assistance program has its own eligibility criteria and the factors considered by most programs are:

  • I am a permanent, legal resident of the United States or Puerto Rico
  • I am uninsured or my insurance doesn’t cover my medication
  • I meet certain income eligibility requirements

How do I apply for the Sotyktu patient assistance program?

Our process makes it as easy as possible to apply for the Sotyktu patient assistance program. Begin by completing the enrollment application form on our website. Tell us about any medications that you are taking, including Sotyktu, your healthcare provider, your insurance plan, and your household income. This information is required by the pharmaceutical manufacturers who will supply the medication, so it is important to make sure this information is accurate and up to date.

We will review the information that you have provided to determine whether you are eligible for patient assistance. If we can pre-qualify you for assistance, NiceRx will handle the full enrollment process on your behalf. If you are approved by the pharmaceutical company, you will typically start receiving your medication in 6 – 8 weeks.

Is NiceRx a Sotyktu coupons provider?

NiceRx is not a Sotyktu coupon, Sotyktu discount card, or Sotyktu copay card provider. We do not offer Sotyktu manufacturer coupons, Sotyktu discounts, rebates, Sotyktu savings cards, trial offers, or free Sotyktu samples. We are a service provider that helps eligible individuals access their medication directly from the U.S. pharmaceutical company.

What is Sotyktu?

Sotyktu is an FDA-approved (U.S. Food and Drug Administration) medication manufactured by Bristol Myers Squibb (BMS). Sotyktu is a tyrosine kinase 2 (TYK2) inhibitor for the treatment of adults with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis who are appropriate candidates for systemic therapy or phototherapy. It is not recommended for use with other potent immunosuppressants.

Approval of Sotyktu was based on results from the POETYK PSO-1 and POETYK PSO-2 clinical trials, which demonstrated superior efficacy of once-daily Sotyktu compared to placebo and twice-daily Otezla (apremilast) in patients aged 18 years and older. Patient responses were evaluated using the Psoriasis Area and Severity Index (PASI 75) and the Physician’s Global Assessment (sPGA) score.

Sotyktu is an alternative to biologic drugs such as Humira and Amgen’s Enbrel as well as topical and conventional treatments. As a pill it will be more convinient to use for patients who don’t want to use injectable medicines on a regular basis. Bristol Myers is currently testing Sotyktu for psoriatic arthritis and Crohn’s disease,

What doses of Sotyktu are available?

Sotyktu is available in tablet form, in the following doses: 6 mg.

The recommended dose is 6 mg orally once daily, with or without food. Please see the full prescribing information and always speak with your healthcare provider about any changes to your dose so they can monitor and evaluate your condition.

Sotyktu active ingredients

The active ingredient of Sotyktu is deucravacitinib, a tyrosine kinase 2 (TYK2) inhibitor. The exact mechanism of action linking inhibition of TYK2 enzyme to therapeutic effectiveness in the treatment of adults with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis is unknown, but may be associated with the potential adverse reactions of Janus Kinase (JAK) inhibition.

Sotyktu side effects

The most common side effects caused by Sotyktu in clinical trials compared to placebo include:

  • Upper respiratory infections
  • Blood creatine phosphokinase increased
  • Herpes simplex
  • Mouth ulcers
  • Folliculitis
  • Acne

In rare instances, Sotyktu can cause more serious side effects. These can include:

  • Hypersensitivity
  • Increased risk of infections
  • Tuberculosis
  • Malignancy
  • Rhabdomyolysis
  • Laboratory abnormalities
  • Potential risks may be related to Sotyktu being a JAK inhibitor. Risks include sudden cardiovascular death, major adverse cardiovascular events, overall thrombosis, deep venous thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, and malignancies

Your doctor will assess the benefits of using Sotyktu against your risk of side effects. Patients are encouraged to report negative side effects or adverse reactions of Sotyktu to the FDA. Visit www.fda.gov/medwatch, or call 1-800-FDA-1088.

Sotyktu drug interactions

Other drugs may interact with Sotyktu, including prescription drugs and over-the-counter medicines, vitamins, and herbal products. Tell your health care provider about all of your medications including any supplements you are taking.

Sotyktu contraindications

You should not use Sotyktu if you:

  • Are allergic to the active ingredient deucravacitinib
  • Are allergic to any of the other ingredients in Sotyktu
  • Have severe hepatic impairment (Child-Pugh C)

Talk to your doctor before using Sotyktu if you:

  • Are taking any of the medications that could interact with Sotyktu
  • Are pregnant or are planning to become pregnant
  • Are breastfeeding or are planning to breastfeed

Sotyktu generic

Sotyktu is the trademark brand name for deucravacitinib manufactured by Bristol Myers Squibb. A generic version of deucravacitinib is not available. Generic drugs are generally cheaper than brand-name drugs, but you can still find Sotyktu savings through NiceRx.
