tofacitinib vs baricitinib for alopecia

Okay, so I've been thinking of getting Either tofacitinib or baricitinib. I found out they are both available through Beacon. I was wondering, is one better than the other or are they both the same in terms of side effects and overall effectiveness towards treating AU. Also, is one more effect then the other?If possible how much does baricitinib usually go for on beacon?See More
