Use a birth control method while you are taking this arthritis medicine. Ask your doctor to help you choose a method of birth control that will work for you.|

Your health care provider might recommend that you stop breast-feeding temporarily or permanently — depending on how long you need to take the medication.|
|You will need to have regular blood tests and check-ups during your treatment with secukinumab. Blood tests are done to help watch your body’s response to treatment. They can show small changes before problems get serious. Keeping track of your results lets your doctor take action as soon as your blood counts change to help prevent many arthritis-related problems and arthritis treatment side effects.|
|Tell your doctor if you have ever had any unusual or allergic reaction to secukinumab arthritis drug or any other medicines. Also tell your health care professional if you have any other types of allergies, such as to foods, dyes or preservatives. For non-prescription products, read the label or package ingredients carefully.|
|Whether it’s safe to drink alcoholic beverages during treatment with secukinumab depends on a number of factors, including which drugs the patient is receiving. Alcohol can interfere with the way some oncology drugs work, so patients should speak with their doctors about any potential side effects of drinking during treatment.|
|Always consult your doctor and pharmacist about taking any other prescription or non-prescription medication, including herbs, supplements and street drugs. This medicine may affect the way other medicines or products work, and other medicines or products may affect how secukinumab works. Taking secukinumab together with certain medicines or products may cause serious side effects.|
|If you miss a dose of secukinumab 150 mg, take the missed dose as soon as you remember it. If it is close to the time of your next dose, skip the missed dose and resume your dosing schedule. Do not use extra dose to make up for a missed dose. Please consult your doctor to discuss changes in your dosing schedule or a new schedule to make up for missed doses, if you have missed too many doses recently.|
|Taking a single dose of expired medicine is unlikely to produce an adverse event. Expired drug may become ineffective in treating your prescribed conditions. To be on the safe side, it is important not to use expired drug. If you’ve had a medicine for a while, check the expiry date before using it. If it has expired or is damaged, return it to your pharmacist for disposal.|
