You're welcome! Hope more people come post here too!
I am a fellow Xeljanzers from CT! I am 35 and was originally diagnosed with AU at age 3 1/2. I was very fortunate that after 3 years my hair grew back in and I continued to have AA until after the birth of my twins in 2012. From there I battled with my AA doing shots 1 x a month and it slowly progressed to AU again. I was very fortunately to get in to see Dr. King in June and started Xeljanz shortly after the appointment. While the regrowth is not as quick as I hoped, I am slowly seeing regrowth!
Hi 2bunnies, I see Dr King too and I'm having a great regrowth. It took over a month to start seeing signs of growth, but then I was off the meds for a few months due to insurance problems.
Now I'll get to see exactly how it's going to work since I won't have to stop taking it again. Still have several patches around, I'm finally starting to see improvement on those patches after a month and a half back on Xeljanz. I was fortunate not to lose what grew on the previous 3 months of treatment, so that part keeps growing longer and longer!
Yes it's great Xeljanzmiracle! I haven't had contact with anyone with alopecia in such a long time! There was a support group nearby, but they ended the meetings. Great to keep in touch with people going though the same as me!
Hi! I'm in Seattle Washington and have been on Xeljanz for 4 months now. I started July 1st with 2 pills a day and went up to 4 pills a day on September 1st. At this point I haven't had any growth, only a few little hairs on my scalp that haven't done anything for 2 months. I did get injections and have growth in a spot about the size of a softball, but with my experience with the injections the hair falls out within a few months. I just took prednisone yesterday and will take it again in one month. Praying this will work. If it doesn't, then we will explore another option. Alopecia can run on different pathways for different people so I'm not giving up!
where can I buy xeljanz in mexico? I can not go back insurance denied, xelsource denied me this year after helping me for two years, prescription hope also helped me but soon after they all seem to think I make too much money. I am a registered nurse in the ER help thousands of people, but I can not help myself its very tragic for me to just give up on my treatment that works.
