I just started Xeljanz on thursday,I got mine free from the company that makes it(Pfizer) through the hardships program ,there are two programs one with a co pay card the other is the hardship program it actually ships it to you once you are approved from there pharmacy,I'm totally pleased with how the company helped me get the drug for free.I'm so hopeful that this will be approved through medical insurance companies in the future.best of wishes to us all.

Hi Jcortez05,

Are you taking any vitamins while on xeljanz? I've been on xeljanz for about 6 months and don't have near the results you have, congrats on your results :)
