Welcome to HealingWell, Margeurite. I've never worked with MediCal, so don't know what to say about
that. My only suggestion is to contact the Gi and ask if he can provide you with enough samples of Asacol to hold you until your prescript
ion is filled. I'm assuming that Asacol is not on the formulary Medical uses, so they have to have a justification from the doctor and then do the approval process. Since the GI doesn't normally take MediCal patients, he probably didn't know the procedure and this slowed things down.
Call him and see if he has samples you can take.
