Couldnt take any more biologics due to immunogencity (build up of antibodies)for past 5 years. And suffered greatly after having great success with enbrel.

Tried all types of alternatives (Radon in CZech republic being the biggest rip off), diets, supplements etc. Nothing worked really well.

Now cosentyx works after two shots pain greatly reduced and living much better. I take a small dose of steroids, some tylenol and pepcid before each shot as a precaution but dont really know if i need them.

Also because i have commercial insurance cosentyx picks up my entire tab that the insurance wont. up to 17,000 a year!!

Thank god for the great drugs we have!!
