How soon before you notice relief of your symptoms on Cosentyx?

Hi, just started Cosentyx, first 2 started doses. I have already noticed clearer skin, though my skin wasn’t really bad, my question is how long before you notice relief from PSA symptoms?

    My arthritis did not cause me pain. Instead, for me, I was put on Cosentyx to prevent the PsA from affecting my kidneys (indirectly I think). I had a protein concentration in my kidneys of over 3000 when the norm is <=30. The nephrologist (and several colleagues) considered a link between the PsA and the CKD. That's why I was put on the Cosentyx, really to fight the CKD, not arthritis.

    However, to address your question, I started with a 1 dose/wk regimen for 5 weeks, and then have been on it once a month. We saw a change in the skin abrasions shortly after the end of the initial 5wk dosages.

    Hi Clairmarie
    I’ve been on Cosentyx since Sept of last year and I still have a lot of pain.

    I asked my Rheumy how long for this to work and she told me it could take several months because I’ve been misdiagnosed and for so long.

    Clairmarie, I have just started Cosentyx…Rheumatologist told me it could be first part of March before I notice anything. However, within days of my first dose, I got a bad cold and my WBC is low….go figure.

    I’m sorry @melissagallo. Yes it figures. I’m just afraid this won’t work for me. I have no reason to think this. I was on otezla for not quite 2 years, but never reached clear skin. I still was on ointments. My arthritis got worse, hence the change. I’m hoping this will be my answer. I hope you feel better and can get back on track!
