What would be excellent is for the current and future UC’ers of the world who have experience with Xeljanz (Tofacitinib) to start including their reviews of this on this page, both reviews of how it went, and as well any potential side effects.

I started site shortly after being diagnosed in October of 2008 with severe pancolitis (when my whole colon was inflamed).
For me, it was a very rough start with severe symptoms. Getting bounced from medication to medication was not easy or too helpful. But, I did meet another UC’er, changes several parts of my diet, and of course the rest is history.
