Dangerous Side Effects of Xeljanz

The Xeljanz label warns of many serious side effects but fails to mention death:

  • Perforations of the stomach or intestines
  • Serious infections
  • Lymphoma and other cancers
  • Liver enzyme elevations and other laboratory abnormalities
  • Non-melanoma skin cancers
  • Hypersensitivity reactions

The current Xeljanz & Xeljanz XR labels do not warn of DVT events, but a recent post-marketing trial found an increased risk of PE in certain patients taking a 10 mg twice daily dose of Xeljanz.

Signs of venous thromboembolic events such as PE or deep vein thrombosis (DVT) may include:

Symptoms of PE:

Sudden trouble breathing
Shortness of breath
Chest pain (or back pain)
Coughing up blood
Severe sweating
Skin that is clammy or bluish-colored
No symptoms

 Symptoms of DVT:

Swelling in the affected leg
Pain in your leg (often feeling like a cramp)
Discolored skin on the leg
Warmth in the area affected
No symptoms

Patients experiencing these symptoms should seek medical attention immediately. Consult your doctor before stopping any prescribed medication.
