What is Rinvoq?

Rinvoq (generic name Upadacitinib) is a rheumatoid arthritis medicine used to help adults with moderate or severe arthritis who have already tried methotrexate. It is a JAK (Janus Kinase) inhibitor. In rheumatoid arthritis, your immune system attacks your joints. This can cause painful swelling and stiffness. Rinvoq stops the immune signals inside your body that trigger swelling, pain or stiffness.

Conditions treated by Rinvoq

Rinvoq is used by adults over age 18 with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis for whom methotrexate did not work well, or could not tolerate methotrexate. People with rheumatoid arthritis have an overactive immune system which attacks different joints in the body. When the immune system attacks, it causes inflammation (redness, pain, swelling, and stiffness). People with moderate to severe rheumatoid arthritis may experience several hours of morning pain and stiffness, and have trouble getting out of bed. The arthritis may affect ten or more joints in the body. By stopping JAK, Rinvoq can slow down your immune system and prevent painful arthritis flares.

What are Rinvoq side effects?

Common Rinvoq side effects include:

  • Fever
  • Cough or cold
  • Sinus infection
  • Nausea or feeling sick to your stomach

Rare, but serious side effects include:

  • Serious infections including, but not limited to TB (tuberculosis), fungal infections, and shingles (herpes zoster). Call your doctor right away if you notice signs of infection such as: unusual tiredness, muscle aches, cough, weight loss, pain or burning when you pee, fever, diarrhea, sweating, chills, or unusual skin sores.
  • Cancer - By slowing your immune system, Rinvoq may increase your risk of blood cancers (like lymphoma) or skin cancers.
  • Blood clots in your legs, lungs, or arteries - Call your doctor if you develop swelling, pain, or tenderness in your leg, shortness of breath, or sudden chest pain.
  • Tears in your gut (stomach or intestines) - Tell your doctor if you have a fever and abdominal (stomach-area) pain that lingers, or if there's a change in your stools.
  • Changes in your blood tests (low white blood cells, low red blood cells, high cholesterol, or high liver enzymes) - Your doctor will perform routine blood tests to make sure Rinvoq is not causing problems.
