Hi Tony,
I don't think there are many of us here that take xeljanz. Maybe Don was going to try it or had in the past? I would try to Google search their web site and read as much about side effects as possible with your bleeding issues. Sounds like you may want to consider an alternative if it is a common side effect.
Good luck to you.

Hi Tony,

I took Xaljanz for a whole 2 weeks. I had really bad intestinal problems on it and had to stop taking it. I had very intense pain and am going in for a scope of my upper GI as a result in a few weeks. If I remember right intestinal tears were one of the side effects on this drug.

Make sure to read the pamphlet that comes with it and also look on their website. I reported it to Pfizer and they sent me so many forms to fill out I was astonished.
