I'm into about my 4th month of Xeljanz, thank God it worked. And have shown up with pretty elevated liver enzymes.
I have, in fact, cut back on wine consumption just to be kind to my gut, only have a few glasses on the weekend.
Doc swears this is not a usual side effect - any opinions?
Also - as predicted and is noted in side side effects, my cholesterol has shot up. My GP recommended omega 3, 500 mg twice a day before heading to a statin. I am taking Carlson fish oil as I cannot take those MASSIVE omega capsules. Anyone had success with this - and / or - did it loosen your bowel?
