Cosentyx Side Effects

Updated
Bruce Says:

I was on Enbrel for 5 years for plaque psoriasis and had 95% clearing. I became tolerant to the Enbrel and the plaques started coming back especially on the scalp. Was put on Stellara which caused unrelenting fatigue and nausea with no clearing at all so I stopped. I am now taking Cosentyx which caused nausea and fatigue for a day or two after each shot. I just took my 6th dose and again have nausea and fatigue. The Cosentyx has stopped the spreading of the plaques but I have not had any clearing as of yet. I have been told not to expect much for three months so I have started the timer. Good luck to all of you and thank you for sharing, it gives me hope.

How are you doing, now? Has there been any change?

Yes, it can usually take awhile for any given medication to reach its full level of efficacy in your body.

The NIH lists the typical side effects of Cosentyx as possibly including administration site reactions, redness, burning, and headache.

Hi. I have Ankylosing spondylitis and have had some success with enbrel as far as pain...but my hair is falling out despite all sorts of supplements and hair treatments. I understand cosentyx works differently and I shouldn’t have that reaction to it? Does anyone know if hair loss with enbrel means hair loss with cosentyx?

I have been on Cosentyx for 6 months. Due to my 4 maintenance rounds of shots in 2 days, I do two 150 mg shots monthly. I have always experienced the sinus issues and frequent urination. This month hasn't been too bad for those issues. Knock on wood. But now constipation is a problem. Help.
