RA, Lupus, Sjorgrens and whatever else

I was wondering if anyone has had a reaction to biological xeljanz. It worked great and then I got a big infection in my lower jaw that the heavy antibiotics almost didn’t cut. I am still having a few problems with the infection. I have a root canal and cap there plus a bridge. Don’t know where the infection came from. Starting to go down and still have a hard time opening my mouth all the way because of my jaw.

Had the same thing 3 years ago. Had a jaw scrape eventually after 5 months of struggling to get rid of the infection. Was not using xeljans though. Has stopped using methotrexate, as it does cause mouth sores, never had issues with my jaw again. I hope that you heal from this. It is awful. hugs.

I take Xeljanz and so far so good but I did have some dental work lately and they told me not to take the xeljanx with an antibiotic so any time I take an antibiotic I have to stop the Xeljanz I had an infection due to the Rituxan and got scared of it I ended up with MRSA and surgery and a week and a half in the hospital . good luck to you and God bless you
