Cammy - Look for drug trials... Ask your GI about
it and you can also call the Gastroenterology department at all the hospitals near you to see if they are hosting any trials for Abatacept or Humira...
The only bit that can suck is if you get placebo - but if thats the case u end up on
open label in the end anyway and get the real drug - so in the end, you get treated for free one way or another.
There is no way I could afford the Abatacept drug I am on considering it would be over $1k AU dollars per infusion. So I am very thankful for the drug trial I went on.
