I found this on the Asacol Website...it seems to be a card for 15 bucks off a month for Asacol prescriptions...read about it. I think you fill out a survey and fill out info for a newsletter and you get this card, info about Asacol and samples....sounds good.

Hi Merxese and welcome to Healing Well. I am so sorry to hear you have this dredful disease. I am old enough to be your mom and I know how hared it is on me. The accidents you mentioned, honey us ole peeps and young alike have them too, I guess its just part of this disease.
First off you can get help with your medication. Your parents can get help with your medication free of charge. In fact, one of your parents or yourself, need to call the drs office and let them know your parents do not have the money to buy your medicine with. Most of the time the drs have free samples given to them for their patients by the drug rep. Also, the drug companies thru your drs office can arrange to have your medication sent free of charge or if they require any payment it would be very little. Many, many people do not have ins and they get their meds either by free samples from the dr or the drug company.
Most drs also will give a patient a reduced fee if they know the patient has no insurance and are having to pay cash for a visit. Have your parents contact the drs office on this. If I think of anything else I will either email you or post here. Many people get their meds free and drs visits at a reduced rate.
It really upsets me that you did not have your medication for a couple of weeks and had to go w/o. Thats just so unfair.So, please discuss this with your parents and call your drs office ASAP.... Susie
