I've been on 5mg twice a day since November 2, my eyelashes are coming in slowly as are my eyebrows. I haven't had any side effects at all. Unfortunately, in January I had to switch health insurance and I'm working with BCBS to…"
"Hi Christopher's_mom - thanks so much, this is helpful. I'm afraid that as it stands right now, my derm is leaving it up to me to write the case. I see her next week and I will insist that she take pictures and help me with the case.…"
"Hi Nicole - I'm curious about what BCBS plan covers Xeljanz. I had CareFirst and I was able to get approval for them to cover Xeljanz. Because of the significant raise in bi-weekly deductions for health insurance, I switched to BCBS on…"
"I developed AU in Feb 2017, prior to that I hadn't been sick in over 5-6 years. I sometimes feel cold symptoms coming on, but within hours, they are gone. Interesting enough, two weeks ago I had hernia surgery, I'm anxious to see if,…"
