Hello, John! How are you?

As reported by the FDA, it is usually known to cause weight loss, as a side effect. You may also experience nausea, fever, headache and stuffy nose.

Can anyone else that's been on it chime in with their experiences?

Cosentyx gives me a full feeling with very little food and feels like it takes longer to digest. I am only on my 4th week of use. I am overweight and this is a positive, for now.

8 month user & over weight. Yes, Cosentyx causes weight loss. Less of an appetite, little food and you feel full. And...difficulty swallowing, indigestion, lethargy and hair loss.

I'm getting ready to start this medicine. I was just reading a forum where everyone said they gained 20lbs plus. But to hear hair loss? I'm getting nervous now

I've been taking Cosentyx for 5 months now and have gained 10 pounds. My appetite has decreased, I often feel bloated and have cut my daily calories. I don't understand why I gained so much weight so quick.
