I've bern on xeljanz for 3 months for RA. It worked great at first but the last month I've had joint pain and the stiffness return along with constant chills and insomnia since commencing this drug. Has anyone else experienced these symptoms?

Hello Sandra,

I did some research and I sourced the list of adverse reactions that the manufacturer claims that are associated with Xeljanz.

upper respiratory tract infections,
headache,
diarrhea, and.
cold symptoms such as sore throat, runny or stuffy nose.

The chills that you are describing as feeling could be part of the cold symptoms that they claim some of their users are experiencing. As for the joint pain and stiffness there could be a number of reasons that the medicine stop working. One of them is that your body has started to develop an immunity to the drug quicker than anticipated and the other option I can think of is that you may be keeping your medicine in less than desirable conditions and they are losing their potency faster than they should.

Pills should be kept in a sealed container at room temperature and should not be introduced to any form of liquids. Doing so will keep your drugs fresher for the longest possible amount of time.

If you have taken proper care of your medicine and you simply feel that it is no longer working for you please consult your doctor and see if there is another drug that you can try that may work better for you long term. Have a great day and take care.
