    Along with starting the generic XELJANZ XR from bonhoa.com and I've changed my entire diet. Taking on this fight to put myself in remission so that I don't have to live my life with needles, infusions, severe pain, I wanted to find my own path to remove the inflammation, joint pain out of my body.

    I was on Humira before taking Xeljanz and still had daily pain, tremors, and was constantly battling sinus and respiratoryissues. I have been on Xeljanz for over a year and have had no tremoring, fewer infections which were less severe than with previous meds, and my pain is almost non existant. This med has changed my life for the better!

    After taking this medicine for 3 weeks, I have broken out in a terrible itchy rash on my forearms and across my torso. It looks like I've been bitten by ants and it itches terribly. It's an allergic reaction so I have to stop taking it. I was hoping for great things.
