Imbruvica/ibrutinib

After 6 yrs post transplant and 5 yrs cgvhd my dr wants me to try this drug. I have been on pred now @ 5 mg daily and methotrexate 10mg 1x a week. Completed 2 yrs of photopheresis. My gvhd is scored 3 in lungs but skin, eyes, muscles and digestive are at 1. I am 70 yrs and dont know if i am dealing with gvhd anymore. I have lost much mobility from steroids. Am concerned over starting new drug with serious side effects. Anyone have experience or knowledge of drug? Thanks so much
