Looking for feedback on anyone that has taken Xeljanz for RA. I was diagnosed with RA about 6 years ago. I've seen the ads for Xeljanz and just wondered how well it works. Thanks!

First, have you try methotrexate? What were your results?

I've used Xeljanz for about 6 months and had decent results. Joint pain/swelling is down and I'm now able to do a lot of the little daily chores that I wasn't doing before. It's given me a lot of freedom that I didn't have before. I'm worried about the side effects (especially the immune system issues) but I guess I'll deal with those next winter. For now, I'd recommend it!
