Hello everyone! I recently got approved for Xeljanz and I will be starting it tonight. Thought it would be a good and helpful idea to record how I’m doing on it. I couldn’t find too much information regarding PsA patients while I was researching it. I will be updating weekly.
Here’s a little background about me. I was diagnosed with PsA around 10 years old so I’ve pretty much tried all of the biologics. Orencia used to be my holy grail, but its lost its effectiveness so on to the next I go. I’m also currently taking Arava. Has anyone taken Xeljanz? What has your experience been like?
This is pretty irrelevant but, during my research I found this link. It discusses how JAK inhibitors might be helpful in treating both vitiligo and alopecia which I am also diagnosed with. It will be interesting to see if I notice a change with those. Also with my psoriasis. It’s out of control at the moment.
