Anybody on Xeljanz? I've tried Humira (didn't work), Enbrel (raised my liver enzymes), and Orencia (gave me terrible headaches and fatigue). I'm hoping this one works and I can tolerate it.

Headaches and Xeljanz

Headaches and Xeljanz

Anyone one taking xeljanz suffering from headaches. I have one almost every day since I started taking it but didn’t think it was because of the xeljanz. I also have migraines but these headaches are different. I’ve tried my migraine medicine and over the counter medicine and neither work. I have been able to determine they’re not migraines due to location of pain and because my meds don’t work. Thank you all for any input.
