Secukinumab - Dosage and How to Use

How should Secukinumab be used?

  • Secukinumab should be injected as prescribed by the doctor.
  • Secukinumab is available as a prefilled (ready-to-use) Injection. It is given via injection under the skin (subcutaneously) of your stomach, thigh or upper outer arm. You and your doctor will decide if you should administer Secukinumab yourself. You or your caregiver should receive training on how to inject Secukinumab from your doctor, pharmacist or specialty nurse prior to attempting the administration on your own. Always remember to rotate the injection site.
  • The effect of Secukinumab is not seen immediately. It may take several weeks before you observe an improvement in your condition.
  • Do not stop using your medication without checking with your healthcare professional. Stopping Secukinumab suddenly may cause the symptoms of your condition to worsen.

What should I do if I miss a dose?

​If you miss a dose, inject it as soon as you remember. Talk to your doctor to discuss when the next dose should be given.
