I have been taking Methotrexate along with enbrel, No relief, the enbrel was autoclick injection, which I hated due to burning, stinging at the injection site, as well as hives all up and down my legs. I have been taking Xeljanz for only a week now, WOW what a difference! Other than Some minor stomach pain, im very impressed. I can open jars, doors, tie my shoes now!! THATS HUGE! THANK YOU!! Wanda

I began horrible medical problems over 6 years ago, when the diagnosis of RA, which took about 9months to a year to diagnose. I then was give mehatraxated, and the plaquewaneil. Didn't do anything and at times made me sicker.I suggested to my doctor xeljanz, he said it was very expensive. Thank god, I hadon't great insurance, the medicine manufacturer has a program that will help with copay. Also a relief. So I tried it, I was told if it was going to work it would take 2 weeks. my issues, which included. Not walk, just shuffling could open a door or hold anything in my hands without severe pain. It took 2 days and I had no pain in my knees. Within a week I was pain free. I have been on the medicine for 4 years pain free and no side effects. Truly blessed.

I was taking Humira (injection 2xmonth) for over a year. While my lab work was coming back with normal ranges and showed progress. While labs were coming back favorable, my R/A was still causing pain and joint disfigurement. The humira injections were done at home. Very painful. something I dreaded due to the stinging and soreness that followed biweekly dose. I discussed this with my doctor and she prescribed xeljanz 7/31/2018. Almost immediately I began to have side effects from taking the medicine. Mostly they were G I related. Ie nauseau heartburn diarrhea. Then 1 week into taking the prescribed dose 5mg (IR) 2x daily I began to develop a rash on palms of both hands. Skin was red, tingling and peeling. It would clear up but then come back same as before but more severe. By 3rd week of taking the meds I became ill with flu like symptoms. The doctor decided to discontinue xeljanz 6 days ago from today. I’m he GI symptoms still there but worse in my opinion. What’s more, the rash on my hand that was come and go suddenly progressed and turns out to be shingles. I wish I would have never take. This med and would discourage anyone considering it

Been taking Xeljanz for about 4 months with mixed results. Had RA for more than 8 years and tarted taking Xeljanz after trying Methotrexate, Plaquenil, Sulfasalazine, Embrel, Humira and Arava which were all either ineffective or I was allergic to them. I feel a little better taking Xeljanz because I do not always feel so tired and drained with fatigue. Xeljanz also helps with the pain and inflammation but does not allow me to return to my normal activities. The pain is still too great in my knees and lower back to walk well all the time. And this is after I have been gluten, soy, dairy, caffeine and alcohol free for more than 3 years. There must be something that is completely effective???

I have been on xeljanz for three weeks now, I was previously taking methotrexate and it did not help. This is the first time in three years that I feel normal and was able to start exercising, so far so good. I'm keeping my fingers crossed.
