How Xeljanz® May Lead To Serious Complications And Conditions


Xeljanz® (sold generically as tofacitinib) is a drug made by Pfizer commonly used to treat arthritis or ulcerative colitis in older adults.

The way Xeljanz® works is to essentially suppress the patient’s immune system to treat arthritis inflammation, which may lead to a lot of bad side effects that are clearly displayed on the drug’s label.

However, one set of side effects not specifically warned about is various heart-related events, such as cancer, blood clots, and even death.

The FDA has issued as many as 3 safety alerts to warn patients that Xeljanz, taken in certain doses, can cause an increased risk of heart-related events in the lungs, up to and including death

The history of FDA approval for certain ailments Xeljanz® includes:

  • In 2012, the FDA approved Xeljanz® for rheumatoid arthritis
  • In 2017, the FDA approved Xeljanz® and Xeljanz XR® for psoriatic arthritis
  • In 2018, the FDA approved Xeljanz® for ulcerative colitis

In 2020, the FDA approved Xeljanz® for polyarticular juvenile idiopathic arthritis

Reports And Studies Of Xeljanz® Cases On The Rise


Just because a medication has been approved by the FDA doesn’t mean that it is completely safe to take–a fact that millions of patients are finding out the hard-way.

In February 2019, an ongoing FDA Xeljanz® safety trial found an increased risk of blood clots in the lungs that may cause death.

Also in July 2019, the FDA issued new warnings about thrombosis–when blood clots block a vein or artery–potentially leading to death in patients treated with a 10 mg twice-daily dose of Xeljanz®.

In fact, the following conditions may potentially qualify for a strong case and compensation:

  • Patients who were being treated for arthritis with Xeljanz® or Xeljanz XR®; and
  • Patients who were taking a 10 mg twice daily dose of Xeljanz® or Xeljanz XR®; and
  • Patients who suffered a Pulmonary embolism (“PE”), Pulmonary thrombosis (“PT”), Deep vein thrombosis (“DVT”), stroke, or similar blood clot injury.

Xeljanz® victims and their families should be able to address big pharma and their prescribing doctors about the failure to warn and to get the compensation and justice they deserve.
