What is Taltz?
Taltz (ixekizumab) is a medication most often used to treat individuals suffering from plaque psoriasis, psoriatic arthritis, and active ankylosing spondylitis. In studies, Taltz reduced psoriasis area flare-ups by up to 75% during the first few months of treatment, and 40% of patients experienced complete elimination of symptoms.
Taltz is injected under the skin, and you may be instructed on how to administer it at home. This is not a daily medication—doses are usually given every 2-4 weeks.
What does Simplefill Provide?
Living with autoimmune diseases such as plaque psoriasis can cause a good deal of stress if the appropriate treatments are not available. The stress of managing such conditions is only made worse by financial worries stemming from high prescription drug costs. It’s important not to let financial choices stand in the way of receiving needed treatments to effectively address your condition and improve quality of life.
Simplefill advocates work on your behalf to connect you with patient assistance programs that help you save as much money as possible on your Taltz prescription.
How does Taltz Work?
Taltz is classified as a biologic, a medicine based on proteins from living cells that targets specific immune system processes. Taltz blocks the action of interleukin 17 (IL-17), a substance known as a cytokine that is produced by the immune system and causes inflammation.
Specifically, IL-17 stimulates the production and activation of keratinocytes, which account for 90% of the cells of the epidermis—the topmost, protective layer of the skin. IL-17 plays a key role in the production of plaques, so blocking its action reduces plaque formation.
