Thank you for the advice!
I'm very excited to meet some friends that know exactly what we're going through!
I'll keep you posted!
So which pharmacy in Turkey can we go to then? I would prefer some pharmacy in Istanbul or another big city as they are easy to reach. I would like to buy a supply for 6 months then at once.
Can you order it by mail?
Hello! Is this blog post still active? :) I came across this exchange while searching for others with AU that have started Xeljanz, (been successful with it), and have then had to stop Xeljanz.
I myself started Xeljanz about 2 years ago - I have AU, and am a patient of Dr. King's. I had tremendous success with Xeljanz - All of my head hair (and body hair) returned within about 6 months of taking 5mg twice daily of Xeljanz.
I've had a full head of hair for about a year and half. Heaven. A couple of months ago, I became pregnant. This will be the first child for my husband & I, and I decided to stop Xeljanz due to the pregnancy.
Within about 4-6 weeks of being off Xeljanz, my hair began to fall out. :( It seemed to happen overnight. I am having a very difficult time, to say the least. I have been searching for others with similar experiences, looking for a bit of encouragement and hope.
It will grow back once you are on the medication. The medication acts at cellular level to block the body from attacking itself. It’s not a cure once you stop the medication your body goes right back to attacking itself in even more rapid manner than before. I’ve been on xeljanz since 2014. I finally feel normal. It seems every year the decide to stop giving me the medication. Insurance giving me the run around, Xelsource helped for a few years thus year says I make too much money. I am a Registered Nurse in the ER I help thousands of people, but I can’t help myself. I can not afford $3000.00 a month on xeljanz. I am looking into other avenues to obtain medication. If anyone has a reputable site please contact me. Thanks guys we finally found a rx that works, nobody else has to suffer.
Based in ireland .I’m on xeljanz for the last 7 months. 10.5mg per day (India supply 4.2mg per pill so 2.5 pills daily.) I have fully regrown eyebrows , beard and (albeit light hair about 70% thickness) full coverage of scalp hair with zero patches. With a spray of hair thickener i look like I have a full head of hair. Going to go 3 pills per day from next week (12.6 mg daily) so just to give alopecia the final kick up the yazoo and thicken to 100%
What company did you use in India to obtain xeljanz please contact me. Thank you M
