    Hi. On xeljanz for 2 years. I have become angry and irritable since I started it. It made me feel do much better. Afraid to switch ti something else because it has helped with RA. Doc says no one reports the personality change. When I call for a refill the speciality pharm always asks about personality and behavior changes. Just found this group

    Diagnosed with RA 10 years ago - 2007. Used Enbrel successfully for 9 years. Experienced an RA flare up early 2016, as Enbrel didn't seem effective anymore. Rheumatologist switched me to Humera but no better results. September, 2016 I was switched to Xeljanz, 11mg once a day. Received relief. February, 2017, Plaquenil, 200 mg, twice a day, which improved the results.

    Since June, I have had 4 diverticulitis attacks, the first one requiring hospitalization. After each attack, I was put on a course of Flagel and Spirograph, antibiotics. During that time I stopped the Xeljanz and plaquenil. After the 10 day course of antibiotics was completed, I again resumed the Xeljanz and plaquenil. One to two weeks later I had another diverticulitis attack.

    My GI is suggesting surgery at this point. Maybe I don't need surgery but a modification of my Xeljanz therapy (preferably), or switching again to another RA treatment.

  • Xeljanz and diarrhea

    Started xeljanz 3 months ago for RA after being through Enbrel, Humira, Orencia. Now, diarrhea is terrible, after every time I eat, with cramps. Will it go away or do I have to stop xeljanz?

    I am on Immuran now....been taking 50mg x 4 xday for past year. My Rheumatologist just prescribed Xeljanz XR 11mgs. He would like me to stay on Immuran also but drop down to two pills a day. I am nervous about staying on Immuran because I read on Xeljanz site not to take these meds together. I also asked my pharmacist and he said the same thing. When I brought this up to Rheumatologist's front office staff they said that "yes, the pharmacist does not always agree with doctor...but doctor has used this combination before". I should follow the doctors orders.
    Is anyone else on this combination?
    Thank you.
