There are lots of other medications you can use that don't cause bleeding. I'm on remicade and that doesn't cause bleeding. I have ulcerative colitis so I have to be careful about that too. With all the drugs available why does he want you to take xeljanz?
Diagnosed with ulcerative colitis in 2005 and rheumatoid arthritis in 1998. On Remicade since 2005 for both diseases. For UC tried sulfasalazine, Lialda, colazal and others which made me ill. Started 50 mg. Imuran July 2015. Use Bentyl, peppermint oil capsules and Gas-X which all help with various UC symptoms during a flare.
