What’s the Problem With Xeljanz?

The U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) has issued an updated warning about Xeljanz (tofacitinib) indicating that final results from a safety study show that the drugs may increase the risk for thromboembolic events, cardiovascular events, and death, even when taken at the lower dose of 5 mg twice daily.

Previously, Xeljanz had been linked to an increased risk of a venous thromboembolic event (VTE) or well known as a blood clot formation in the veins when used in rheumatoid arthritis patients at a higher dose of 10 mg twice daily. New information shows that the risk is increased at all dose levels including 5mg twice daily.

This may include episodes such as deep vein thrombosis (DVT) in the legs which may result in pulmonary embolism (PE), cerebrovascular accident (CVA), and myocardial infarction (MI), any of which may be serious or life-threatening. Other serious adverse events linked to Xeljanz include opportunistic infections, cancer, and sudden cardiac death.

People or loved ones of those who took Xeljanz and were injured or died after using the medication may be filing Xeljanz class action lawsuits seeking compensation from the drug manufacturer.
