SOTYKTU (deucravacitinib) is a prescription medicine used to treat adults with moderate-to-severe plaque psoriasis who may benefit from taking injections or pills (systemic therapy) or treatment using ultraviolet or UV light (phototherapy). It is not known if SOTYKTU is safe and effective in children under 18 years of age.
TAKE WHEN AND WHERE YOU WANT
Managing moderate to severe plaque psoriasis can get complicated. With SOTYKTU, you take a once-daily pill. SOTYKTU can be taken anywhere, at any time that fits best within your daily routine.
