I've had a bad flareup of my RA for several months now and we were unable to get it under control with Methotrexate and Prednisone. Dr. suggested trying Xeljanz instead of going to injectable/infusion.

I have been using this for about three weeks. During week two, I felt better than I have felt in years.
