What is XELJANZ?

XELJANZ (tofacitinib) is a prescription medicine called a Janus kinase (JAK) inhibitor used to treat:

  • Adults with moderately to severely active ulcerative colitis when medicines called tumor necrosis factor (TNF) blockers did not work well or cannot be tolerated

It is not known if XELJANZ is safe and effective in children or in people with Hepatitis B or C.

XELJANZ is not recommended for people with severe liver problems.

XELJANZ is a pill, not an injection or infusion.

XELJANZ is the first and only FDA-approved pill for adults with moderate to severe UC in whom Tumor Necrosis Factor (TNF) blockers did not work well enough or cannot be tolerated.

Three ways XELJANZ may be able to help you:

  • Can reduce symptoms in as early as 2 weeks.Symptoms include rectal bleeding and stool frequency.
  • Can improve the appearance of the intestinal lining.
  • Provide lasting steroid-free remission.

Ask your doctor if XELJANZ is right for you.
