Humor stopped working. Apparently I have formed antibodies. Sigh. Rheumie is recommending Cosentyx. Anyone have any experience with this drug? Thoughts?

As always, TIA.

Have you asked about another Anti-TNF such as Enbrel?

I just started Cosentyx 3 weeks ago and it's working amazing so far! I can't use anti-TNF because apparently I'm one of the lucky ones that experiences congestive heart failure on them. Since Cosentyx is an IL-17a inhibitor, I'm not having those issues and I'm virtually pain free! I'm almost maxed out on methotrexate, allergic to sulfa so Cosentyx is a miracle drug for me so far. YMMV of course, but give it a shot!
