Anyone Tried Xeljanz XR?
A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I fought tooth and nail to get this medication because I refused to go down the road of injectables again. I was on Humira and Enbrel. I developed a nasty rash from Humira and Enbrel did absolutely nothing for me. I’ve been on the Xeljanz XR for about 2 weeks now and have noticed some improvements. Anyone else have success with this medication?

Has Anyone Changed Treatment From Xeljanz To Another Biologic?
A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have taken Xeljanz for about 5 yrs and am in a conversation with my rheumatologist about whether it is time to change. Symptoms that I never had before have started over the last 6-8 mo. Lower back pain, fatigue, low energy.

Has Anyone Taken Any Of The Immunosuppressants If You Only Have One Kidney?
A MySpondylitisTeam Member asked a question 💭

I have ankylosing spondylitis and had a kidney removed. My rheumatologist said there isn't any data with a patient with only one kidney. I told her I feel that it is probably because it's not something you should do with only one kidney, but she kind of just dismissed me and wants to prescribe cosentyx or xeljanz.

I'd love to meet others who have AS without B27. My father and I both have the joint damage and were diagnosed about two years ago.

A MySpondylitisTeam Member

They should have a card that puts money on it that allows you to use as your copay, normally your dr will get that started for you. I chose not to take the Enbrel injections as I work in the hospital… read more
