I don’t know the actual half-life although I’m sure the information is online however when I stopped taking it, the side effects were completely gone in about three weeks. The headache was gone in a few days but the intestinal pain took longer to pass. That’s just my personal experience. I was taking the extended release version of the drug.
I am trying to find out how long it takes for Xeljanz XR to get out of your system because I am trying to have surgery on my foot and the Podiatrist is concerned about how long it will be out of my system so he can do durgery. I have Goggle and went to the direct website for Xeljanz but, i can't find an answer. Thanks!
