Taltz – Dosage, Side Effects, Cost, and More

What Is Taltz?

Taltz is a brand-name medication that contains the active ingredient “ixekizumab”. It can be injected into the bodies of children and adults to treat moderate or severe cases of plaque psoriasis. As a form of monoclonal antibodies, the medication can selectively bind with interleukin 17A in the body to deactivate it. This mechanism has been shown to help improve the symptoms of psoriasis and arthritis. Doctors often prescribe Taltz for those people who have just had light therapy or systemic therapy. Currently, you cannot purchase this medication in the genetic form. [1]
