    I seem to have responded to my new medication Xeljanz to a certain degree that is helping my pain levels but I seem to be on self destruct for my marriage due to awful mood swings and personal attacks on my hubby and my grown up children, I have been impossible to live with for the last fortnight especially and I only just increased my Xeljanz from 1 tab daily (5mg) to 2 tabs daily (10mg) approximately 3 weeks ago, can anyone shed some light on this, oh and this evening I have reduced my dose back to the original 1 tab daily as I don't want to be like this. ?? Many thanks for any input. ;-)

    I have rhumetoid arthritis diagnosed at 40years old now I am 49 years old. I am takeing zeljanz 5mg twice name day but it is causing me to shed my hair. I can see my scalp on the left side of my head. I feel less swelling and some pain relief can do more but the hair shedding is so concerning to me. I do not have a family history of hair loss. What can I do or take to counter act the hair shedding and keep takeing this medicine? Any advice is appreciated.

    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
