i get my asacol for free thru proctor & gamble - patient assistance program.
my GI tells me i will probably also be able to get rectal meds thru the same type of program.

you have to apply and be approved every year and then they mail 3 months worth at a time. then you call for refills.
it's a huge blessing but i know i will need medical insurance in the long run.

I don't know how you Americans do it. I'm always reading about how expensive the treatments can cost, I'd be bankrupt if I was paying for mine or even having to pay for insurance (which is about $1000 a month for me due to UC). I'm very thankful of the national health system here in the UK and my doc gets me all my probiotics for free.

The only thing I have to pay for is my LDN which I just bought off label from an online pharmacy (haven't started it yet though).
DX with UC Jan 07
Currently taking Colazide (allergic to Asacol and Pentasa) 6 a day
Also taking VSL3 X1 a day
