Taking Xeljanz

Taking Xeljanz

Has anyone taken Xeljanz for there RA? Orencia didn’t work and my Rheumatologist wants to start me on Xeljanz.

Xeljanz worked for me for pain, but unfortunately I had one UTI after another when I ws on it and ended up with a very serious infection that made me sick for six months. It was too bad, because it really helped with the pain, and not having to inject was a tret for me. I hope it works for you.

I would just really do your research or Xeljance before taking it. Under the affects on the digestive system and other systems before making your decision. Good luck.

I have been taking Xeljanz for a few months now. Will be changing meds soon because the Xeljanz isn’t working, but I didn’t have any side effects.
