Hi..I have the generic proctocedyl supps, generic URSO and a few others not UC related...I say use them and if you don't have a problem, then they're fine.
If you want the name brand, you'd have to pay the difference..right?

*Heather*Status: mini flare Dec 28... tapered to every 4th night
~diagnosed January 1989 UC (proctosigmoiditis)
~5ASA: Asacol (6 daily) + Salofalk enemas (increase for flares tapered to maintenance)
~Bentylol (dicyclomine) 20mg as needed
~vitamins/minerals/supplements 
~Probiotic 3(Natural Factors Protec) bedtime + 1 (Primadophilus Reuteri) occasionally
~multi-digestive enzymes as needed ....zymactive 3 - 5x daily
~Ranitidine,Pariet (reflux) Effexor XR 75mg;  Pulmicort/Airomir (asthma)
~URSO for PSC (or PBC) 500mg X 2 daily (LFTs back to NORMAL!!)
My doc's logic.. "TREAT (FROM)BOTH ENDS"  worth it !!!

Yes, my insurance will only cover generics, and the CVS pharmacy by me said no generic Canasa, and it would cost me $700 for 60 of them. Wat too much for me.

I have no idea if it is available any longer, but I was once able to get mesalamine supp. at an online pharmacy.  Cost way way less money than canasa cost at the drug store.  I think the site was called...... canadadrug?  Might be worth a look through google.

UC since 10/05, first symptoms felt as early 1983
canasa and lialda daily
