Pros and cons of being on Xeljanz. How long have you been on it and any side effects? Any better on it? Thank you. Ann

I tried it and it gave me really really bad chest pains . I felt like i was going to have a heart attack or something. I was popping Tums and antacids thinking it was heartburn, but soon as I stopped taking the Xeljanz I was fine. You can try it, it may work for you but it definitely didnt work for me. I am ok with my Enbrel

I just started xeljanz this week. Really would like to hear from everyone that is on it. I took Remicade about 9 years and did pretty good. Then it stopped, so tried Simponi for 6 months then started bad psoriasis so stopped that and tried Orencia. My psoriasis got real bad all over my body. Was so sick. So Dr. Is trying xeljanz on me. Also I take Methotrexate.sure would like to hear from some of you.

I was on it a total of 4 weeks! I had 2 bad episodes of very high blood pressure with chest pain. It was gonna kill me I think. One thing that I noticed on the tv commercial is that it may increase cholesterol. And by George! Mine was above normal. Only time within past 2 yrs. So it works fast! I was so optimistic about it but it was the very worst drug I've had so far!

Thank you for your answer. I take Enbrel but insurance wants me to try this. I hate the shots! Nice to meet you.
