Hey. to all stuff. My dad suggested I vent a little to people. I figure why not? If I annoy you you cant really do Too much......
Ive had Crohns disease for...about two years now. Long enough to know what it feels like to lose so much blood you get a bit...crazy. I always try to be positive, but that usually hinges on how long it is til my next doctors visit.
Dont get me wrong. I dont mean to complain. things could be Alot worse. I have an...okay life. isnt really Made yet. Im trying to get it all together. Job, girlfriend, etc. one slow step at a time.   But every now and then I wonder why...   ehh i'll stop right there. dont need to put myself into the depression category.
where was I? ...ahh yeah. I actually have a question for...whoever might listen.
You see im coming off of my fathers insurance soon. Doctors are asking for me to come in for a scope which will be fun to work in to my schedule... but. if they stay oh we cant do anything... I cant pay 300 dollars to continue my med. and the Dr. said there Is no generic. or other options.  huh.     so....canada?  I dont.... ehh. i'd just like some input.
thank you for your time. you've been a wondorful audience.

I've ordered meds from online. A canadian pharmacy site. Meds are about 1/2 the price. Your doctor writes the script. You fax it to the pharmacy along with your ID and you get the medication no quesitons asked. scripts can only be made up to 3 refills, no more than that. I did it with no problem. My GI doctor told me about it and she told me it's the same thing. I have ins. now, but i know one day i may not. I"ll just order it on line next time.

Contact the drug company for the medication that you are on. Are you in the US? If so, with many of the drug companies, if you don't have prescription insurance and are income eligible, you can get medication for decreased cost or free. When I didn't have prescription coverage, I got my Pentasa for free. Hang in there
