I just started Xeljanz after years of taking Enbrel. Anyone take Xeljanz? I would love to hear your experience with it (good or bad). Thanks!

I personally do not. But many report excellent results. I hope you do as well........... rick
I hope some community members with any experience can chime in here and let you know about their experiences with Xelijanz. In the meantime, I'm linking an older forum post where someone asks about Xelijanz as well. https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/forums/xeljanx There might be some comments/conversations that you find helpful. Wishing you a gentle day. -- Warmly, Christine (Team Member)

Hi . First, let me start by noting that everyone's experience is different. That said, it can be good to hear about other people's experiences as your body adjusts to the new treatment. This article with input from the community on their experiences with JAK inhibitors, including Xeljanz, may be of interest: https://rheumatoidarthritis.net/living/jak-inhibitor-reviews. I can also tell you that my wife, Kelly Mack (a contributor here), used Xeljanz to little effect and with side effects that necessitated finding a different treatment. That said, a friend of ours used it successfully for years. Hoping your experience is more like this last one. Best, Richard (RheumatoidArthritis.net Team)
