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
Skin that is clammy or bluish-colored
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
Patients experiencing these symptoms should seek medical attention immediately. Consult your doctor before stopping any prescribed medication.
