Taking Cbd Oil With Xeljanz

Recently my doc took me off Methotrexate, predisone and Humira as Humira wasnt working anymore and Methotrexate was making me sick. Im waiting to start Xeljanz middle next month but until then Im suffering.

If You Take Xeljanz, How Is Working For You And Have You Had Any Side Effects? How Are You Being Screened?

Xeljanz is only 2 years old and so there are no reports of long term side effects. It has been suggested I start it but I am very leery of the long term effects especially with recurrence of cancer.

RA, Lupus, Sjorgrens And Whatever Else

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.
