Effects Of Using Rinvoq

Did you know that there are many drugs out there whose side effects are much more than benefits? In other words, the magnitude with which the benefits they have on us is nothing to compare to the evil effects. RINVOQ is one of those drugs. I will break it down in a bit.

RINVOQ, as a Janus Kinase (JAK) inhibitor, stops the inflammatory process of the body system.

It has been used over time to alleviate the following conditions; Moderate - severe rheumatoid arthritis in adults. Active psoriatic arthritis in adults. Moderate – severe atopic dermatitis (eczema) in adults and children above 12years old. Note; RINVOQ is used to treat adults and children older than 18years old or those who weigh above 40kg.


Sudden dyspnea (shortness of breath)

General malaise

Chest pain and pressure that spreads to other parts of the body.

Slurred speech, drooping on one side of the mouth 

Pain swelling or redness in an arm or a leg

Nausea, vomiting, cold sweat

Lightheaded feeling like you might pass out.


RINVOQ may cause serious side effects, including:

Infections. RINVOQ reduces the body’s antigens making the immune system weak and thus increasing the risk of infections. While taking RINVOQ, there are chances of contracting serious conditions, including tuberculosis (TB) and infections caused by bacteria, fungi, or viruses that spread throughout the body. RINVOQ should not be taken if the patient has any kind of infection unless the physician recommends so.

Cancer and immune system problems. RINVOQ may increase the risk of lymphoma and skin cancers. Current or past smokers are at higher risk of certain cancers, including lung cancer.

Increased risk of cardiovascular conditions, such as heart attack, stroke, or death, in people 50 years and older who have at least one heart disease (CV) risk factor, especially if you are a current or past smoker.

Agglutination. This is a condition where blood clots in the veins of the legs or lungs and arteries. RINVOQ increases the chance of agglutination, which may be life-threatening and fatal. This condition often occurs in people who are 50 years and older and with at least one heart disease (CV) risk factor.

Allergic responses. Symptoms such as a rash (hives), trouble breathing, feeling faint or dizzy, and swelling of your lips, tongue, or throat have often been noticed in people on RINVOQ. Some of these reactions are more severe. If any of these symptoms are observed during treatment with RINVOQ, discontinue and seek emergency medical help as soon as possible. Ulcers in the stomach or intestines. RINVOQ increases the hydrochloric acid in the stomach, thereby causing tears and ulcerations in the stomach and intestinal tract.


Do not take RINVOQ if:

You are allergic to any of the ingredients in RINVOQ.
