I am a 52 year old female... I have been on Xeljanz for the last six months... at first it was great for me then all of a sudden it stopped working. I take it along with the plaquenil and lodine for pain but I am more swollen and sore on a daily basis.. than I ever was on Enbral it's a shame that stopped working for me..
