"With food but i don't think it makes a difference, really. I also drink alcohol. I know you're not supposed to but I'm a social person and go to bars, parties, etc. I usually have anywhere from 2-4 glasses of wine per week."
I started on the standard dose of 2 pills per day.
I never went above that. I started to respond rather quickly in about 5-6 weeks.
My doctor is the one that suggests that if by December all is good then to drop to 1 pill per day."
I haven't experienced any exhaustion no more than usual. I feel these days, everyone is exhausted, lol.
I'm really good about getting 8 hours of sleep (at least Monday-Thursday) and I exercise every morning. I don't…"
Congrats, I'm so happy for you!
I just restarted Xeljanz and hope to continue the results. I am not doing cortisone shots as I feel it's not necessary now since I have no patches.

I will definitely put something together.
Sorry for the late reply. I didn't get any notification of replies and I haven't checked the forum. I'll piece together something by this weekend."
I def would want to assist those who need it.
I had been through a medical state appeal before for my surgery, so I knew the "buzzwords" to use in my letter (quality of life, etc.).
I also included my own studies I…"
"Well, how about this!
I got my FedEx'd 3rd level state appeal decision today.....APPROVED!

"I work in spice and food industry. There is something called a bait and switch. For example, you order from these chinese vendors and they will send you a sample to test. The sample comes out fine and you place an order for 100 pills. Those 100…"
Just my opinion but I would never, ever, buy any medicine from Alibaba/Aliexpress and certainly not from China. The quality control is simply not there and one is just opening themselves up to complications from possibly adulterated…"
I have read your comments and i think I have very similar symptoms as you. I have had alopecia since I was 10 yeas old (now I'm 24) but from 14 years old to 18 years old, I recovered the totality of my body hair. Now I'm struggling with my scalp hair, eyebrows, beard, arms and some other random parts in my body. I have maybe 65% of my scalp hair, 35% eyebrows, 50% beard, no arm's hair, and 90% of hair in my legs. It has always been an obsession of mine the loss of my eyebrows. Very much more than the loss of hair in other parts of my body. I will be traveling in a couple of months to meet with Dr. King who prescribes Xeljanz. I want to ask you some questions if its ok with you.
