Comment:
Have had RA for 13years. Have used enbrel for the past 11 years along with methotrexate . Have had bad flares for the past 9-12 months. Started xeljanz almost two weeks ago. The pain has definitely lessened. It is still so early I do not want to jinx myself. I am able to function better than I have or th past 6 months. I have not had any major side effects so far.

I have been on several RA meds and this is the only one that works for me. I still have some swelling and pain but overall 5-star miracle. I also stopped taking methotrexate as well after being on this for 3 months.
