Hi Doctors I am taking Xeljanz 11mg every days since

Hi Doctors
I am taking Xeljanz 11mg every days since April till now but every morning when I woke up my fingers are swollen & pain/or stiff and its on and off so my Doctors recommend me to take Sulfasalazine 500mg twice a day with Xeljanz, and I stopped prednisone a month ago, so my question is if I start taking new Sulfasalazine do you think it will help?

thank you

I currently take remicade infusions every two months for my RA, but it isn t stopping the deterioration of my hands. I play a lot of golf and my hands are really giving me fits. They are getting worse and I would like to know if Enbrel or Xeljanz or another option might be a better drug for me to stop the hands issue?mj
