Hello @nafal, welcome to Mayo Connect. I’m glad you found us. This is a great place to discuss symptoms, treatments and ask questions. I have polymyalgia rheumatica and small fiber peripheral neuropathy and can relate to trying a lot of different things and having difficulty getting answers. I can’t answer your question but hopefully others will join in and provide some information for you.
Mayo Clinic does have some information on reactive arthritis treatment that may help – http://mayocl.in/2pG41eb
Mayo Clinic also has some information on Amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) – http://mayocl.in/2pmWx3h
Another good place to do a search is Google Scholar – https://scholar.google.com/
Hoping you find some answers soon.

Hi Nafal – I did a search of the Mayo Connect Groups and could not find any reference to the drug. I was able to go to the US Food and Drug Administration website and find a lot of information on the drug that may be helpful.
Have you talked with your primary care doctor to let them know the drug is not helping much? It might help to have a discussion or maybe a second opinion on treatments.

@nafal, I’d like to welcome you to Connect, as well.
In addition to what @johnbishop has detailed, I did find some information about Cosentyx (Secukinumab) in our Bones, Joints & Muscles group that may interest you:

A while ago, @denver90 wrote about his sister who was diagnosed with ALS, and I hope will return with more insight for you.
@nafal, as John mentioned, have you talked with your healthcare team about Cosentyx, or considered getting a second opinion? I can only imagine the heartbreaking challenges with this condition; what symptoms are you dealing with, that you feel the drug is not working?
Sorry guy's i misspell one of my condition i have ankelsondelitis hope i spelled. It right not ALS. Sorry. Nafal
